LATEST NEWS :
Planning permission has been granted for the new Storage building and the order placed. We have removed one garage – thanks to help from a community group of Jaguar/Land Rover employees. We need to clear round the second garage to establish where the present base is and prepare extra ground for the extended base for the new building. We have a working party planned for mid July, but may need more assistance from Parents and Supporters in August. Contact me if you are able to help.
Thanks to all who helped at Barford School Fete in July – both those on the stall and those who supported by buying the Jigsaws, books, jam, stocks and Draw tickets.
Over £2000 has been raised for the Youth & Community Centre funds by the monthly Quizzes (see below) – a fantastic result – well done Hilary Maynard.
