We are thrilled to announce that we raised the incredible sum of £9182.67 at the Christmas Fair this year. A huge thank you to Friends of Pinewood and Pre-Prep for all their hard work in making the event such a success and to everyone else who helped on the day and visited the fair. A proportion of the sum raised will be donated to our chosen charities for this year: SeeSaw, Meningitis Research, Greatwood and Twigs and the rest will be put towards a special project at school.

Year 1 Trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park

On a bright October day, the Year One children went on their first ever school trip, to the Cotswold Wildlife Park in Burford. The excitement of a coach journey was overwhelming, with many children using words such as ‘awesome’ and ‘cool’ before we even got to the park. The children delighted in watching the penguins being fed and going into the Madagascar enclosure, with many lemurs basking in the sunshine and birds flying up above. The new additions to the Wildlife Park, three lion cubs, were adored by all, and the children were able to watch a giraffe eating hay from very close proximity. The train journey around the park allowed the children to see many of the animals as well as the opportunity to wave at the general public!  The children also had the opportunity to listen to a talk given by a Keeper on ‘owls’, learning about the significance of the colour of owl eyes. We are very lucky that Friends Of Pinewood sponsor some of the endangered species at the park, and we were able to see both the Humboldt penguins and the Morelets crocodile, two of the animals sponsored by FOP. A fun day was had by all!

Friends of Pinewood Summer Afternoon

afternoon 43

We are delighted to announce that we raised over £920 at the Summer Afternoon last week. We are very grateful to everyone who came and supported us and to all those who kindly volunteered their time to help run stalls. We are particularly grateful, however, to 100 Chai Street from Marlborough. Run by the Roy family, they sold their very popular street food from all parts of India. They gave up their time to run the stall at the Summer Afternoon and only charged us for the cost of the food, so all their profits came to Friends of Pinewood. Please do pay them a visit next time you are in Marlborough.

Thank you!
