PTA Meeting.  There will be a PTA planning meeting on Thursday 11th October at 7:30pm at The Fenwick, Claughton. We will be planning our fundraising and activities for the coming year and would love to hear your ideas and thoughts. We have a few people who are moving on at the end of this year who have been very active in supporting the PTA and it would be great to welcome some new faces who would be keen on getting involved in some way. You don’t have to commit to attending every meeting or helping at every event, the more people that get involved, the less we each have to do individually. If you would like to know more about what the PTA does and how it works, please come along and be assured of a friendly welcome
