Friends of Metheringham School - Summer 2009
FOMS would like to thank everyone who has supported our events this year. We have arranged lots of activities including a Music Quiz, Valentine's Disco and Easter and Christmas Raffles alongside coffee morning and tombola. The monies raised have enabled FOMS to purchase and have installed a sound system at the school, to buy pom poms for the school Cheerleaders and to contribute to the purchase of new musical instruments.
FOMS would like to invite you all to our next event which is the Summer Fair to be held on Saturday 4 July between 1.00 and 4.00 pm at the school and playing field. Let's hope that the rain disappears for the day and we look forward to seeing you all there!
