Local schools decorate for Christmas! - posted 12th Dec
As is now tradition, our local primary schools helped us create 100’s of wonderful Christmas decorations for Belle Vale Shopping Centre’s Christmas Tree to help advertise the Zoe’s Place Light up a Life campaign. Also this year, as our BIG Little Library is still currently open, we were able to display every single one of the stunning decorations created by all ages of students and fill the shop with added Christmas cheer.

Belle Vale Primary school took part in a whole week of exciting science at our school this week.
