Thank you to everyone who supported last week's cake and uniform sale. We hope those who missed out on cakes weren't too disappointed. The sale raised £93.70 for the school. Amazing!
We always need more volunteer bakers for both the Christmas fair and next spring's cake sale, so please do get involved.
We are looking for volunteers to join the sub-committee group to plan and organise this year’s school Christmas fair. We’d love to have some new faces and fresh new ideas! To get involved please email email@example.com or speak to a member of the fomps team.
