Newsletter - Spring 2017

Once again, FOJORPS seems to have started a successful fund raising year, with a number of events and activities already completed.

We have already seen some excellent events, ranging from the community wide Christmas Market in late November (which was very well supported by the whole village) through to the new format school discos, which the children seemed to really appreciate.

Following up on last year’s purchase of new iPads, we are once again looking to support the school through some further equipment purchases, as well as funding trips and activities for the children. As details of our fund raising targets develop, we shall keep you all updated through these pages.

Our next open event is the Ladies’ Fashion Show and Sale, to be held on the evening of Monday 6th February. With a range of styles, sizes and prices to suit all, we are sure that there is something for all ladies in the village! Last year’s event was a sell-out and we expect tickets to sell fast. Look out for posters around the village and at Starbuck’s Newsagents.

Beyond that, we are already looking forward to the next Community Day, which will be held on Saturday 17th June at the Alderbrook site. Building upon the success of last year, we will be introducing a number of new attractions this year, as well as bringing back all of the old favourites, in the hope of attracting even greater numbers than last year. If any villager wishes to have a stall at this year’s Community Day, or is in the position to support us in any way (perhaps by offering a raffle prize?), please do get in touch.

Future dates

6th February Ladies Fashion Show and Sale, Alderbrook Hall, Chapel Lane
17th June Community Day 17, John of Rolleston Primary School, Chapel Lane

Thank you for your continued support
