FOMS are also delighted to announce our Summer Fair 2018 will be on Saturday 16th June from 12-3pm! Although this may seem a good while away, it is never too early to start to plan these major events. Therefore, we will have our first Summer Fair planning meeting on Friday 23rd March from 9am at school. We were tremendously grateful for all of the support FOMS received in planning the Christmas Fair this year – it wouldn’t have been the success it was without the support from the Monkfrith Community! We hope to continue that momentum in planning the Summer Fair as it will be a larger and more involved event. If you would like to find out more, have suggestions or ideas for the fair or would like to get involved (in big or little ways) then please come along to the planning meeting. We hope to see you there!!
As always, if you would like to get in touch with FOMS for any reason, or would like to join our committee and be at the heart of organising events and making decisions regarding FOMS, please email us at FriendsofMonkfrithSchool@gmail.com for more information.
