 Message from Friends of St Michael’s School:

Thank you: The Friends of St Michael’s School would like to thank each and every person who volunteered, made a cake, marshalled, labelled tombola items, helped with marketing, ran in the run, donated online, came early to put up tents, helped with registration, packed stuff away at the end of the day. The Fun Run and Summer Fair was a success because of all of you! 223 runners took part and it was all a lot of fun. We made a lot of money and we’ll let you know how much when all the totals are totted up.

Happy’s Circus: will be upon us before we know it and tickets are available NOW at https://www.stmichaelsaldbourne.co.uk/circus-tickets/ and in the playground each afternoon from Alex Lambert and her pink spotty bag for a bargain £9 each.

We will be holding a planning meeting for marketing, selling tickets and organising the circus itself on Tuesday 18th June 2019 at 2.30pm in the school. If you can come please contact Alex Lambert on alxcoops@yahoo.co.uk  or email if you can’t make it but have any great ideas or links with other schools and organisations where we can sell tickets.

Sports Day: The Friends of St Michael’s help serve refreshments during the day. If you are able to help, please could you let one of the committee know or email us on aldbournefosms@gmail.com.  If anyone has time to make a cake and bring it along for us to sell on the day that would be amazing.
