Thank you to all the companies and local businesses who donated prizes, food and drink, a special shout out to Quarters Estate Agent for sponsoring our raffle.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped out, beforehand behind the scenes and today running the stalls.

Finally, if you feel inspired and want to help with future events please do get in touch, we have a very small PTA committee and with more hands we could do so many more fantastic events to raise funds to directly help our children. We are a lovely, welcoming bunch 😀

Thank you to everyone who came along to the AGM last night, Christmas Bazaar planning is now in full flow 😃

We are still desperately seeking a new PTA Treasurer, it isn't a huge role and doesn't need to take up a great amount of time but is a very important role to be able to keep the PTA running and providing our children with all the 'extras'.

Accountacy / book keeping experience would help with the role but isn't essential.

Please do get in touch and we'd be happy to have a chat about the role if you are interested

Thank you 😃
