Our ever popular quiz night returns - 7.30pm on Friday 20th May 2016

Fantastic news! We have agreed the date for our next quiz night. It is 7.30pm on Friday 20th May 2016.

If you'd like to buy tickets our preferred payment method is a transfer of money direct to the Friends bank account ( Lloyds 30-93-55 01464461 - Please include your surname and your your child's class number ).

As always these events only take place through the efforts of the volunteers who give their time and because of the sponsors who kindly support them.

Included in the ticket price is some fantastic food which is being prepared Yasmin at Layla's Kitchen.

As always the Quiz is open to anyone so we really hope to see you there.
