Maypole project 2017

You may recall last year our Year 4 pupils took part in the very popular Maypole Festival.  The Youth and Community Arts would like to offer this event again in 2017 but need to secure some funding.  They have applied for the Aviva Community Fund and have been successful to the next stage – the public vote.  They need as many people as possible to vote for the project to gain the funding.  The more votes they get the more likely they are to receive funding!  Voting begins tomorrow.   Your support would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Year 4 Egyptian Museum
