Mum was the word at Aldborough community centre at the weekend, when the village nursery school hosted a Mothering Sunday big breakfast.
More than 150 mums, dads, grandparents and their children headed down to the community centre on the village green to tuck in to a choice of a traditional English fry-up or a continental breakfast cooked up by a four-strong team made up of Stepping Stones Pre-school Nursery committee members.
The event, which also included a raffle, face painting and cake sale, was the idea of mum-of-two Antonia Gray, who was helped by fellow Stepping Stones parents.
“Going out for breakfast always feels like such a treat and thought it would be a lovely way of celebrating Mothers’ Day, and of bringing the whole community together,” she said.
Mrs Gray has previously organised two similar events – to raise funds for Aldborough Primary School and for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital neonatal intensive care unit, where her son Jack spent six weeks after his birth nearly three years ago.
“People enjoyed it so much when we held a Big Breakfast before and we have had a wonderful turnout and great feedback again this time,” she said.
Thanking Mrs Gray and her team for their efforts, Stepping Stones leader Lydia Prior said: “There is always a shortfall between funding and the money we get from fees, so we are very lucky to have a wonderful committee who are willing to work so hard in their spare time to help.”
