This life changing chance to purchase uniquely personal yet fully functional domestic housewares only exists until Monday 20th March.
ACT NOW !! ORDERS MUST BE IN BY 20TH MARCH
Then relax as you dry those dishes with pride whilst contemplating junior's future as a caricature artist in Leicester Square*
For the price of a St.Patrick's day Guinness* you could own this priceless* creation today.

Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!

*£5 each or 2 for £8
Next PTA Meeting
Will be held at The Crown on Hatfield Rd from 6.30pm on Thursday 17th November.
All members of the PTA (that's all parents and teachers) are invited to attend.
(although I've warned the staff at the Crown only 7 people showed up to the EGM so they're not expecting a sell-out crowd)
I will try and post the agenda here asap. Any agenda items / feedback / general praise ahead of the meeting please use the form below.
We will post the minutes on screen in the pub for all to see and keep the forum open after the formalities are concluded in order that parents who can't get there in time can see what's been discussed, any decisions made and raise comments at their leisure over a glass of fizzy apple juice....
Thank you to all of you who came to see the fabulous Fireworks on Friday. Great night and hopefully plenty of dosh raised for the kids.
Thank you especially to all of you that made it happen. Jude for organising everyone, Isabel, Emma, Rachel, Rachel, Caroline, Rebecca and Helen (obvs!) all leading the throng of parents and teachers who made it all (shall I?...) go with a bang ! (yes ! I shall).
Thanks to the bbq bros. David and Peter, slaving away over the hot coals, and our lovely dinner ladies for staying on and making sure the kitchen ran like clockwork. Thanks to everyone front of house manning the stalls & keeping the customers happy and the fearless fire-marshals keeping sparklers at bay. Also to everyone on Saturday morning tidying up in the rain. Low glamour - big kudos.
Great fun and inspiring seeing so many people come together to make it work. Singling individuals out for praise in such a large group of helpers is always dangerous so apologies to those I forgot to mention, but old age is.....you know..........erm................
Also apologies to those of you who signed up on PTA Social to find out that someone else had nicked your slot. We seemingly have lots of very
helpful people and a system and these two things have a lovely yet brief intersect. We're working to make it better but thank you all for your offers of help - please do not be dispirited - your hour (or 1/2 hour) will come!
Finally a special thanks to Kate and Emma for singing happy birthday to my Mum over the tannoy! Very special !!
Next stop, PTA meeting (it's hopefully in the Crown but officially we have to call it a meeting) and kids disco....
Nadia and George take a bow!
Fleetfest was a roaring success on every level. Brilliantly organised. Great music. Fabulous food. Crack team of hand picked bar ninjas and ruthlessly efficient clean up squad. Helen – above and beyond the call of duty, yet again! Sell out at the bar. Profits for the kids.
An all round great night. Everybody loved it. Thank you just doesn’t cut it. Superb.
‘When it comes on top, you gotta make it happen!’ These ladies absolutely did..
Johnny Marr plays guitar….
but so does Ian Baskerville. Like an absolute demon. An outstanding performance from the C90’s left the crowd literally (and very persistently) begging for more. A full repertoire of Britpop classics, Oasis, Happy Mondays, Charlatans, Stone Roses, Kula Shaker – shut your eyes and they were in the room.
The musical equivalent of Lionel Messi turning out for the dad’s five a side. These boys will go far!!
The real Boon
never easy being the warm up but delivered with aplomb. Great work to grab the attention of the chattering masses. Definitely worthy of a future headline slot. Fleet-folk-fest? Anyone?...
A big thank you to all the Parents (and Teachers!) for showing up and rocking out! Special mention has to go out to Del, Ray and Leonie - owning the mosh pit! ‘avin’ it large!!!!
Seriously talented people at Fleetville. Absolutely world class effort. When’s the next one?
‘Is it worth the aggravation?’…..
