Oakengates is open for business

Rumours of the death of Oakengates have been greatly exaggerated, Wel- lington News is happy to reveal.

Whilst it is certainly true that trading in this plucky lit- tle market town which is on the famous Watling Street Roman road, have been somewhat difficult over the last few years, regeneration partnerships and initiatives between local traders, Oak- engates and Telford and

The revelation that, at last, the impressive and im- posing building that used to house Walker Technical College on Hartsbridge Road, Oakengates, is to be converted in to luxury apartment has met with ap- probation from all quarters. The general feeling is that whilst it was a pity that Oak-

engates lost its own techni- cal college, that it is fantas- tic news that the building, damaged in a fire, will be brought back to life as high quality apartments.

range of ‘real’ music, from classical to cuban, they also use instruments and other fun props such as puppets, feathers, ribbons and bub- bles to give your child a stimulating and educational experience.

Music can benefit many aspects of your child’s de- velopment and Musical Steps aims to do this by pro- viding well written, age ap- propriate activities, delivered by quality trained Musical Steps teachers.

“I love Musical Steps classes because they are not just your typical ‘sing- along’ for babies and tod- dlers. The classes contain real educational content writ- ten by an expert early years music specialist. But that’s not to say that the classes are not fun; quite the con- trary; they are so much fun, you will not even realise that your child is developing so many vital skills!” says El- eanor Pittam, Musical Steps teacher for the Telford area. She added: “Musical Steps also provides an op- portunity to meet local par- ents as well as spending quality bonding time with your child. So why not come and try us out? We would love to see you!”

Musical Steps taster courses in Telford will be running from June 11 for four weeks on Monday mornings in Lightmoor Vil- lage and Friday mornings in Newport.
