2018 Autumn Newsletter

Welcome to the Autumn 18 Friends of Crowton PTA newsletter, and a big welcome to our new families! We hope everyone has settled in OK.

About us:

Friends of Crowton is a registered charity and works solely to raise funds for additional resources and activities for the children of our school. Achieved by organising and running various fundraising events throughout the school year.

Friends could not exist without the volunteers who give up their free time to help run it; or the ideas generated by those involved with the School. If you have any fundraising ideas, would like to come along to the PTA meetings, or would simply like to volunteer to help at events please do get in touch by contacting one of the members , leaving a message on our Facebook page or by leaving your details with the School Office. We particularly wish to encourage representatives from Reception and Years 1, 2 and 4 to come along.

We don’t take up too much of your time. Any support either on an ad hoc basis or something more regular is greatly appreciated by all.

Current Committee:

Temporary Chair (outgoing Nov 18): Karen Lea-Swain (mum to Miles, Year 3)

Treasurer: Dan Berrisford (dad to Alex, year 5).

Secretary: Helen Deakin (mum to Amelie and Lucas, years 6 and 3).

What we do:

We meet once a term to discuss ways of raising funds for our school. Last year we raised a fantastic £2100 through your support at various events including Disco’s, May Madness and Sports Day. This money has helped contribute to activities/resources such as:

Lego days Theme days Transport to the Panto Leavers’ Bibles and photos.

Focus for 2018/19: To be discussed at our next meeting – October 11th – 7.30 pm, Hare and Hounds, Crowton. ALL WELCOME


Our school is enrolled with Easyfundraising and we would very much appreciate your support. Easyfundraising is a simple way of raising funds for school, takes very little of your time and it costs nothing! Follow this link to the school website for more details.
