A Huge Thank-you from all the FOSPS Team

Thank-you for your support in all of our events. I think you would agree it has been a fun filled year. The cake sales again have been a great success, our new Mother's day sale was really popular and from the feedback that we received the children loved choosing a gift. The disco was enjoyed by all and the Easter raffle went down a treat. Congratulations to all who were lucky enough to win an egg. The children loved working along side both  the poet and artist in residence and the Summer fair was one of the best for fund raising that we have ever had. Lastly the ice cream Fridays were again a great success. We are looking forward to the next fund raising year and welcoming some new member at our AGM.
