Russell Scott’s Summer Fair  will be on Friday July 7th. In order to make this once again a great success, we need as many volunteers as possible. If you can spare any time either before the fair, or on the day, this would be very much appreciated.

Please join us on Wednesday 14th June at 3:15-4:15pm.  Coffee, tea, biscuits and childcare provided! Please let the school office know if you require a place at the special ‘one night only’ after school sports club run by Mr Gorman.
