SUaT School Grounds

Thanks to everyone who came along to our produce stall on Saturday morning.  We will continue to run the stall every Saturday between 11.00am and midday until the school October holidays.

 

If anyone would like a veg box please contact the school office.

 

The first of the Volunteer Saturday Sessions will be on Saturday 19th September 2020 between 10.00am and midday and it would be great to see some parent/ grandparent helpers.  Absolutely no gardening skills required! If anyone can offer some handyman assistance that would be very much appreciated too.
