FoA Christmas Fayre 2017

The Friends of Linthwaite Ardron are a group of parents who meet once a half term and plan fun events for the whole school to enjoy.  The meetings are open to All, and we are always looking to welcome new parents, or receive new ideas on what events you would like us to organise!


Friends of Linthwaite Ardron run fundraising throughout the year, with all of the money raised used to fund extras for the school.  Over recent years we have helped fund and run annual Leavers Party,  Summer Fair, School Discos, Class Christmas Presents, the fabulous Mosaic in the entrance hall, the Outdoor Wildlife Area and the much loved Vintage Post box in the office. 


Over the next few years we have taken on a ambitious plan to transform the Outdoor play areas.  Our target is to raise £35,000!  We aim to achieve this through extending our fundraising to include new activities which will be open to both School Families and the local community. 



We have completed stage 1 (replacing the muddy grass outside the classrooms with artificial grass).  All the staff and children are over the moon with this improvement...….no more muddy children! of the upgrade thanks to all the wonderful support from you. 


We are now saving to start stage 2 (sensory path, which will include the bricks and surrounding area, cost of approximately £8000) of the playground.


Stage 3 will be the most challenging.  We want  to completely resurface the playground and install markings for sports.  This will cost approximately £18,000. 


We need to aim high with our fundraising over the next 2 years and we can only do this with your continued support.
