Saturday Kitchen presenter Matt Tebbutt joins celebrations at RAFAKidz Abbey Wood

Saturday Kitchen presenter and professional chef, Matt Tebbutt, made a special visit to RAFAKidz Abbey Wood as the nursery celebrated Month of the Military Child and its recent ‘Good’ Ofsted rating. The event also marked five years since RAFAKidz was formed.

Matt, who is an ambassador for the RAF Association, the RAF charity that operates the nursery, surprised the children and nursery workers with a special celebration cake and cupcakes.

RAFAKidz Abbey Wood provides childcare for children aged three months to five years at the MOD site in Filton, including government funded places for two, three and four year olds and specialist services for children with special educational needs.

During the visit Matt spent time with the children of military personnel, helping them to decorate the cupcakes before joining in with a rendition of Happy Birthday to kickstart the RAFAKidz five-year anniversary celebrations.

Speaking at the event, Matt said:

“RAF personnel and their families give a huge amount in the service of their country. RAFAKidz and RAFA do a fantastic job supporting serving RAF families and it was great fun to get involved, join in with the celebrations and spend time getting messy with the children.”

Abigail Wood, Nursery Manager at RAFAKidz Abbey Wood said:

“We have a lot to celebrate at RAFAKidz Abbey Wood. Not only is it the Month of the Military Child and the five-year anniversary of RAFAKidz, we’ve recently been awarded a Good rating by Ofsted. We are so proud of the rating which is testament to the amazing team we have here and the care, passion and dedication of each of our staff members.

“We were delighted to have Matt join us and help us celebrate. It made it such a special occasion and the children had an absolutely fantastic time chatting to him and decorating the cupcakes.”

Part of the RAF Association, RAFAKidz has fourteen nurseries located across the country. RAFAKidz was designed to meet the needs of military and civilian families in the community around RAF stations, providing trusted, high-quality quality childcare.
