NEWS

Autumn Fayre Thank you to all who, in any way, supported the Autumn Fayre.  The sum of £2,595.58 was raised for Church Funds.

FOSMS News Thank you for coming along to support our Bonfire Night, the evening was a great success with everyone enjoying the BBQ, mulled wine and hot drinks whilst watching the bonfire and firework display.  We raised the amazing amount of £1160!!

 

 

All of this goes to support the school children.  Each child will have received in their reading packs a plastic bag from Bags2School.  We appreciate your support in filling these bags with unwanted clothing and returning the bag to school on 20 November.  The heavier the bags, the more money we raise.  With thanks, the FOSMS Team.
