Children across the Chew Valley have over the past few weeks making preparations for Mothers Day. Here are just a few highlights of their efforts:

Mothers for mum at youth group (first photo in gallery)

Compton Dando 5 villages youth group children have been having fun again. With Mothering Sunday on the children’s minds the group decided they would make a small pot of spring daffodils to give to their mothers.

Alice Prescott, who helps to run the group, said: “The pots had a willow twig surround and after filling their pots with compost and planting their bulbs the children decorated their pots with ribbons and stickers.

"The kids really enjoyed getting their hands dirty, and having the responsibility of watering the bulbs and watching for the first sign of flowers." she added.

Mothers Day lunch at Pensford Primary (second and third photos)

Pensford Primary School had a special dinner time one day last week as mothers, fathers, grandparents, and carers of the school pupils were invited to lunch to celebrate Mothers Day.

There they enjoyed eating tasty food, which school cook, Lisa Cook and Tina James prepared in the freshly-painted dining hall.

One mum who was there and who wanted to remain anonymous, said: “We just wanted to say thank you so much to Miss Cook and everyone at Pensford School for the lovely Mothers’ Day lunch.

“The roast dinner was delicious and it was so nice to be able to come in and eat with the children. We had such a lovely time and it was great that the mums were made to feel so special.

“The spring flowers at the entrance and on the tables were a lovely touch too,” she said.
