Many thanks for everyone's support and donations.  We have raised over £1000 to spend on the outside area of Miss Morris's classroom

FWPS New Committee






FWPS will need new committee members from September to enable events to continue to run and for much needed funds to be raised.  If you are interested in joining us please come to our meeting or leave your contact details at the office.  Without some new support, FWPS will stop running.
