Today (Monday 10th October), Wendy and Belinda presented Mrs Revill with a cheque for  £ 7000, which was raised by all the Friends (parents, staff and other members of the local community) during the academic year 2015/16. Mrs Revill said that this was a great achievement and she is very happy to be able to use it to fund the new nature garden, help towards refurbishing the school library, the Year 6 DARE project and also more subsidies for travel on trips and visits for the pupils. Thanks to everyone who has come to events, helped with the organisation and of course, volunteered some time to make it all happen on the day / night.
