School Christmas Fayre

Saturday 24th November 2018

 

Just to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who supported the Christmas Fayre. A special thank you to Mrs Clark and the FoLees Team for giving up their time to put on such a fabulous event which brings the whole community together. Thank you also to Mr Clarke and the school choir for their wonderful performances which really helped with the festive spirit. Over £1800 was raised on the day and the raffle takings are still to be added to this.

Gardening

Every Tuesday lunch time, Mrs Judson, Nicky Martin (parent) and Julie (New Coley Nurseries) run a gardening club for the children at Lees.  We have had lots of fun digging planters out getting ready for bulbs, flowers and vegetables.
 
We are so lucky to have such willing and fantastic volunteers and all of the children have loved having Julie and Nicky working with them.
 
A massive thank you to Hilary at New Coley Nurseries, who has very kindly funded Julie’s time with us, as well as donating lots of bulbs and plants.  We are extremely grateful for all her help and hope that this very close relationship between Lees and New Coley Nurseries continues to blossom!!!
