I went to the MFA (Merebrook Friends Association - similar to PTA) AGM last night and have agreed to be a general member and help raise funds for the school to pay for those little extras that the school needs. The MFA subsidise the annual Panto trip, school trips during the year, extra books for the library, equipment for the new outside areas for Year one & two. They do fantastic work, and although I don't have a huge amount of time, I will help where I can. I volunteered to help sell the secondhand uniform outside the school at the end of each term/half term. Although I did warn them that I am not the person to commit to being at the school for 8.30am...as we have trouble getting there at 8.45am LOL.
We are now just three sleeps away from the MKScrappers Weekend Retreat. We are off to Thames for 2.5 days of uninterupted Scrappin'...what could be better. My stash is mostly packed, and childcare is all arranged....roll on Friday.Caz
