I hope everyone is enjoying the school year so far. Just want to introduce you to the Friends of Beckwithshaw (FOBS) community. We are a fundraising organization, ran by a group of wonderful and dedicated parents working closely with school staff, who lend their skills and time to provide fun filled events in order to raise funds for essential school projects.

Last year we were able to raise £2500 for the school garden and provided transportation and admission for the children to the annual pantomime. We are happy to say that we will be providing it all again this year.

We have many ideas and events planned for the year to include movie nights, discos, Christmas Fair, and possibly even a talent show.

This year’s board consists of Julia McGlashan(Elliot’s Mum) as Chair Person, Chris Eskew(Zion and Alesha’s Dad) as Vice-Chair, Elizabeth Greenwood(Amy and Harry’s Mum) as Treasurer, and Sarah Morris(Harriet, Eliza and Sophia’s Mum) as Secretary. Please feel free to ask any of us questions you might have. We would also like to invite all parents to the FOBS Facebook page. There we will be posting of upcoming events and is a way for parents and friends to connect to one another.

If you are wondering how you can help, we are always looking for volunteers to help out with our fundraising events. If you have any ideas regarding fundraising, or where you feel we could improve on what we do, we are always keen to know. Just drop us a note on the Facebook page, see any of us durning school runs, or just drop a note into the school office.

Thank you and here’s to a wonderful year.
