Our aim is to raise funds for the benefit of the pupils here at Rowdeford and also to forge links between parents/carers and the school, helping to promote a sense of community. Proceeds from past events have helped to purchase playground games, equipment and seating and school resources, so your support is very much appreciated.
How can you get involved?
We always need help! Why not offer to help out at one of our events - we always need people to staff stalls and carparks, sell raffle tickets and generally help with preparations. Whether its for one hour or the whole day - you'll be most welcome.
If you feel that you are able to help either with preparations or actively get involved on the day at any of the events please get in touch with any of the committee, via the school office.
We look forward to seeing you at some of the activities and events throughout the year.
Lucy Alford, Terri Chard, Claire Evans, Sarah Gunner, Kay Hunt, Sonia Sansom, Mandy Sheppard, Melanie Tonge, Helen Villis, Kate Walling and Liz Yaun.

If you can spare the time please do come along to one of our meetings where you will receive an extremely warm welcome or contact the school office and leave your contact details and we will get in touch.
