The Quiz of 2019 tickets are on sale NOW from the school office. All are welcome to this fun event on Saturday 5th October from 7.30pm in the Village Hall, led by the inimitable Mr Gardner.  Tickets include a fabulous chilli supper and a dessert auction.  The bar will be fully stocked to help oil the cogs and it promises to be a very entertaining evening. You can either come as a team or individually and teams will be created.

Michelle Renee is going to “Brave the Shave” on behalf of the Macmillan Trust on Saturday, 12th October between 1-3pm. There will be an opportunity to turn the tables and cut Michelle’s hair before it is finally shaved at 3pm.  Please come along, donate and enjoy a glass of prosecco all for this marvellous cause.

 Michelle is also raising funds for the school by selling raffle tickets. There are amazing prizes, ranging from a hair cut from Michelle, an MOT from Chandlers, £30 voucher from The Mill, beauty vouchers from Sarah World of Lashes and Ultimate Beauty and many, many more. Tickets and a list of the prizes are available from Michelle Renee and me.

The shopping evening starts at 7.30pm on Thursday, 14th of November in the school hall and will be an amazing start to Christmas. Tickets are £2 on the door and these include a raffle ticket for some great prizes. The evening is a chance to browse the individual stalls including clothing, artisan chocolates, beauty products, jewellery, decorations, gifts and more. Pick up some presents for your loved ones or treat yourself.  There will be mini pamper sessions  to pre-book and of course the bar will be open.

Our next Annual General Meeting will be Tuesday 8th October at 8pm in the school hall.  All parents are welcome and I encourage you all to come. You will hear what the PTA has been up to for the previous 12 months and what our plans may be for the next 12 months, which is interesting stuff, really! We have a few committee members standing down after many invaluable years of service to the school. It will be a chance to say thank you to them, and a chance for parents to join the committee. The committee is a small group, the main success for the PTA lies with its members and their enthusiastic participation at events.

Therefore, I would be happy to see as many parents there as possible so you can find out what our plans are and possibly where you believe you could help. Any contributions of time and effort, however small, are very much appreciated, and we serve tea and coffee… tempted?

All the best,

Janine Harling
