What a great time was had by all !! 62 people to total came to the first ever joint fundraising quiz for Meadow Lane and College House. We enjoyed a very tasty school chilli dinner, complete with lemon sponge, cornflake cake or ice-cream, followed by 8 rounds of questions based on the school curriculum. Head Master for the evening, Colin Munton, kept everyone in order, in firm but fair style. The “swotty” teachers actually won (by one point) but generously donated their prize to the runners up team. Thanks very much to Haveli (Attenborough Road) for the meal for 4 prize. A fantastic total of £ 355.90 was made for both schools, which we hope will be topped up by Experian with £ 250. Thank you very much to our Committee member Belinda Hughes, for organising it with Clare Chapman, who coordinates the fundraising for Meadow Lane.


Chilwell Carnival 2016

This year’s carnival will be on Saturday 25 June at 12-3.30pm.

Tickets can be bought in advance from the school office, or you can pay at the gate (£ 1 adults, 50p children, under 5s free).

This year we are fundraising to rebuild the nature garden which was lost due to the building work, and we also want to prepare our library for our first intake of Reception children in September. All funds raised at the carnival will go towards these and other curriculum enhancement projects.

Please see the full details under our “What’s On” page, Summer Carnival 2016. This is where you can find out more about booking a car boot slot.

Fireworks Friday 6 November 2015

This year we have booked our fantastic professional display team again, who are guaranteed to give an excellent show again this year. It’s the longest professional display locally, so make sure you get there early to get a good space!

Tickets are on sale on the gate, but you can also buy tickets in advance (to jump the queues) by contacting us on the details below.

Adults £3.50, Children £2.50 and under 5s get free admission.

As ever we will have a plentiful supply of hot food and drinks plus light-up toys for sale, which are always super popular with the kids.

Come and join us for this great family fireworks event.
