Clothes Swap - 7th Jan 2017 (11am-1pm)
What is a clothes swap?
It’s the eco-friendly way to get a new wardrobe for next to nothing:
Swishing is the easy way to update your wardrobe! It’s guilt free shopping with no cost to your wallet and great for the environment.
Swishing works like a giant clothes swap: you bring items you no longer wear and exchange them for something new-to-you!
Advent Fayre - 3rd Dec 2016
Thank you everyone, great event. Market, vegetarian café, tearoom, pottery, wreath making, candle dipping, reindeer rides, therapy room, fairy forest garden, raffle, parent and child room AND music from guests and students. We raised roughly £3,500 and it was fun.
School Ceilidh Dance - 8th Oct 2016 (5-9pm)
Thanks to all who made the Celeidh happen, it was a lovely evening.
We all had a fantastic time last night!, thank you all so very much for creating such a fun filled, safe, inspirational space for the children and also nutritious food!! Love being able to dance with my children, it's so sadly overlooked in mainstream society today!!
Thank you for an amazing evening! Such fun sharing time with so many members of our wonderful community. And we won the veg box!
The summer fayre
The summer fayre went really well, we had a lovely day. Something like 700 adults came through the gate and we raised £4000 thanks to having multiple enterprises run by staff and parents all giving 100% of their takings to the PTFA. If you missed it the highlights were: Pony rides, puppet shows, pottery have-a-go, comedy and storytelling, live music, garland making, therapy tent, strawberry splat game, coconut shy, wholefood café, organic meat BBQ, strawberries and cream, ice-cream, tearoom, pre-loved clothing boutique, plants and books for sale and 12 quality artisan stalls (who took their takings but paid a pitch fee). Next year's summer fayre will be on Saturday 1st July.
