14th June 2019 Summer Fair planning


Naomi Richards (Chair), Patricia O’Flannagan, Elina Dzosare, Emily Aubin, Anna Pilch

Voting on purchases

We voted on two purchases both of which were approved:

  • £310.06 for Letterbox Library books requested by Sarah Paxton, for use by the whole school
  • £350 for Ben Kinsella workshops requested by Beverley Dickinson. Workshops to inform year 6 children about street safety and crime awareness


We discussed organising an evening fundraiser event for which there was general approval. Naomi will look into venue options.

Annual General Meeting

We agreed to move the AGM to Thursday 11th July to avoid clashing with the Parent Council meeting.

First Aiders

We need to follow up First Aid training course participants to see if they have completed their training.

Anna could do the training if anybody has dropped out.

Gemma is a 1st aider so we can list her as backup.

Dr Lucy may also be available.

Community Room cupboards

The Shacklewell Families cupboards in the Community Room need reorganising.

Patricia and Elina have booked the Community Room on Wednesday 19th afternoon to do this
