Dear Parents

Many thanks to everyone who supported the 70s Night, especially the FOHNS committee who worked really hard to make sure it was a fun packed evening. The evening raised over £350. Thank you also to the ladies who organised the Craft Night and to Michelle Holdsworth for providing the craft elements. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening of crafting and chat and raised £135.

The money will go towards a fantastic new outdoor area for Foundation Stage and new furniture for every class.
