Fern Hill Summer Fair
We are delighted to tell you that our Summer Fair raised over £11,700! This is an amazing amount and all down to the tremendous support of every family who came to enjoy the day, bought raffle tickets or hosted a Curchods board. A huge thank you to the team who organised the Fair and to all the helpers for their hard work.
We are continuing with our fundraising for £7000 to plant a pollution-catching, environment-enhancing, privacy-improving hedge between the playground and Richmond Road: The Healthy Hedge Fund.
So far £1500 has been raised in lots of different ways. Some money has been raised by individual children!. Lucas from Bluebell class raised £1.50, Reilly from Lime class raised £38.60 and Charlotte from Beech raised £20.00. Every penny counts so well done everyone who has donated in one way or another.
Please donate to my JustGiving Crowdfunding Page and help make it happen by visiting the following link:

Cake Sale Survey
Last chance to have your say! The PSA is running a short online survey to get your views on the prices of cakes at our class cake sales and we’d love as many parents and carers as possible to take part. The survey only consists of one question so it’s very quick and easy. Please follow this link to take part: https://goo.gl/forms/stIL0pBHfssILIkM2.
Please note that the survey will close on Sunday 1st July.
Be Safe in the Sun
