Pre-school rocking horse has been restored

You may have wondered why the Pre School emblem is a rocking horse, I know I did. Well, the rocking horse that inspired the emblem was once a well loved and well used favourite in Pre School. When it fell into disrepair it was stored away in the shed and sadly stayed there for about 15 yrs. During the clearing of the shed to make it into an outside classroom, we found the horse and decided to find out more about it. After some detective work it was discovered that it was made by Tom Cobley, a maker of high quality rocking horses, in around 1988. Although mostly retired, he kindly agreed to take our horse and restore it. The result is astounding and it now has a new lease of life. Unfortunately we are unable to use it in Pre School so have decided to put it up for sale to raise funds for the Pre School. If you have any memories of the rocking horse and might like to have it as your own then please get in touch! Enquiries to Louisa Margison – chair@dorchesterpreschool.co.uk
