Friends of Lydford

All parents are automatically members of the Friends of Lydford. The association has been established to promote the school, to organise events and to raise funds for the school. They have been able to fund many important purchases. We hope you will be able to support their events throughout the year and sometimes to offer your help. We would like to thank the FOLS committee for their hard work and efforts on behalf of the school.
During the year several fund raising events are held, organised by either FOLS, the school or both. Your support at these events is invaluable and raises funds for many 'extras' at school.

The FOLS Committee
Chair---Barbara Earnshaw
Vice-chair--- Hannah Braithwaite-Smith
Secretary---Louise Watts
Treasurer---Alison Williams

The next FOLS event will be the Fundraising Film Night on Friday 14th October at 6pm. We will be showing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Everyone welcome.  Wear your onsies and come and watch the film with a mug of hot chocolate, marshmallows and popcorn.
