A Welcome Message from Friends of Medmerry

Hello and welcome from Friends of Medmerry.

Friends of Medmerry are the group of parents that raise money to help support the school with additional play and educational equipment. As many of you are probably aware, funding for schools has been cut over the years, and by raising money, we can help fill some of the gaps. The last few years we have supplied the cycle and scooter racks, bought many books for the library, purchased two smart whiteboards, 30 glockenspiels, and new lunch trolleys, to name a few, as well as allocate £10 per child to school trips each year. 

As well as raising funds, our discos and fairs also provide time for the children to have fun and socialise with their friends. Our fundraising events are also a good way for parents to become more actively involved in school life, by helping out when they can.  Many of our regular helpers are working parents, so we know it can be hard to find any spare time, but anything you can give, whether that is helping out at one of the discos, wrapping lucky dip prizes at home, or helping to organise and run events, is very welcome.

 Many of our current regular helpers have their youngest children in the last two years of school at Medmerry, so we are in real need of new helpers from further down the school to come and have a go at helping out, so that the fundraising and socialising for the children can continue.

We do have a facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/friendsofmedmerry, which is a closed group. We post about any events we are holding, and invariably lost jumpers too! We also post for any help we need to run our fundraising events. Please join the group if you can, we'd love to see you there, and hear any thoughts you have on helping us.

Best Wishes,

Friends of Medmerry
