Since the start of the summer holidays we have been experiencing anti social behaviour at the Community Hub Maerdy, former Library, from a number of teenagers climbing on the roof of the building, breaking our gates, the new bin and trashing some of the garden items left outside along with leaving rubbish in the grounds. We feel that this is likely caused by boredom and if that is the case we welcome these young people to come in and meet the community team - If you come and let us know what activities you would like to see run locally we can try and support you but please think about the damage you are causing - This is YOUR community look after it, not trash it! ...

Little Ferns Maerdy had a fantastic morning, our open day was a massive success yet again😊 here are some of the pictures taken today😊

**Reminder for tomorrows session**

Using our weekly observations we noticed that all children have taken a massive interest in water this term, so we have decided to throw a splash party for the last day of term.
we have lots of fun things planned but there is a good chance your children are going to get wet😊
please feel free to dress your children in appropriate clothing, and fetch a few spares and even a towel to dry them off if possible😊

we cant wait!!!
