Summer Fete and more...

Nightingale’s Annual Summer Fete

This yearthe summer fete will be held on Saturday 3rd July. Following on from last year’s successful fun day and feedback, we are hoping to have even more things to do and even more stalls. However, in order to do this,we need lots of volunteers. So, please, just an hour of your time will be a huge help.

Funds raised this year will go towards a large shaded area for the childrenand also towards refurbishing the Science Garden.

You can help us by:

- volunteering your time (before, during or after the fete)

- donating plants for the plant stall

- having an advertising board outside your house

- volunteering to face paint on the day

- having your own stall (non-food) at the fete (will be a charge)

- having your business card in the Summer Fete programme (will be a charge)

- advertising the Summer Fete by asking your children to colour in and then put the Summer Fete poster in your window (a copy is attached to the newsletter)

Details of the above will be in the PTA newsletter which your child will be bringing home either on 26th or 27th May 2010 (or contact the PTA via the mailbox outside the School Office).
