Urgent Plea For Help With Mayday Celebrations

Last year's Mayday celebrations

An urgent plea has gone out to parents to help with St Mary’s Mayday ceremony.

There are so many nursery and infant-aged children on the islands this year that an appeal to help has been placed by the Parent Teacher Association, who feel they’ll struggle to provide traditional teas for the 68 youngsters after the Saint Mary’s Mayday ceremony a week on Friday (27th May).

Helen Glen says the Women’s Institute has arrange food for all of the children and will provide refreshments for the juniors but the PTA needs at least six people to set up tables and serve the younger children.

And they haven’t had enough offers of help.

She doesn’t want the traditional event to suffer so has launched an appeal for mums or dads who can spare an hour from 2.30pm that day to contact their child’s class teacher immediately.
