St Mary’s Church Autumn Fayre will be held this year on Saturday 14 November in the school hall.  If you have any ideas for the Fayre, would like to have a stall of your own, or would like to help on a stall, please let us know.  We are always looking for ideas to help make it a profitable event, with all proceeds going to the Church.   Thank you.  Social and Fundraising Committee.

FOSMS (Friends of St Mary’s School)

FOSMS will kick start the programme of fundraising activities with a Family Ramble.  A lovely event to give families who are new to St Mary’s Primary School the opportunity to get to know each other, and ideal for others who want to have a catch


up with friends.  The walk will take place on Sunday 4 October at 2.00 pm, start from school and finishing at The Traders Arms.  It will take approximately one hour.  We look forward to seeing you.


Our second fundraising event is the school disco which will take place on Friday 16 October from 7.15 pm to 9.00 pm. The disco is open for those children in year 1 onwards. The children have a great night with drinks, hot dogs (vegetarian and meat) being served on the night as well as fruit cups and sweets.  FOSMS would like to thanks all the volunteers who make these events possible.



If you wish to contribute anything to the notices please send an email to Chris Davis at by Thursday evening.
