Lloyds Dads – This week we had 3 Lloyds Dads (Ian Mitchell, John Fielding and Simon Richards) visit us as part of their community day. They worked really hard helping to create our mud kitchen and put up swings in the Forest school area. They also helped to clear up the pond area. A big thank you to them for all of their efforts!
Flag pole help – Also a big thank you goes to dads David Bailey, David Cooper and Brendan Hodkinson for their help in digging the holes for our flag poles. We really appreciate all the hard work they put in too!

Lost Property – The lost property bins are filling up again. Please check to see if you can claim any items. If unnamed school wear items remain in the bins by the end of term, they will go to the second hand uniform sales and any unnamed casual clothes will be placed in the ragbag collection. There are currently shoes and coats as well as clothes in the bins. In reception we also have a collection of glasses. Please do check to see if any items belong to your family!

Press Release from Bradford on Avon Community Sports Hub Campaign:
Hundreds of homeless children gather in Bradford on Avon!
May 21st 2016, 2pm to 3pm: Photo call 2.30 pm
Beehive Field Bradford on Avon
On the afternoon of Saturday May 21st, hundreds of children and adults from sports clubs across Bradford on Avon and the surrounding villages will gather together to show their support for the proposed community sports hub on the ‘Beehive Field’.
The community sports hub proposal is within the new Bradford on Avon neighbourhood plan. The local sports clubs are gathering in a ‘Hubbub’ to raise awareness amongst local people for the proposal and to encourage everyone to feedback positive comments about the Sports Hub proposal on the Town Council website.
About the event:
The event will be a brilliant photo / film opportunity. We will be providing a cherry picker so that good shots of the gathering can be taken from a height.
Attending will be children and adults from:
Bradford Town Youth Football Club
There will be banners, children lying on the ground to spell the word ‘Homeless’ and lots of noise!
About the Sports Hub proposal:
Despite its strong sporting heritage, Bradford currently has no dedicated sports facility. The youth football club has over 350 members – remarkable for a market town- yet they play on over 10 different pitches, some 5 miles from the town. Current facilities are inadequate, with flooding and parking issues and no changing facilities or toilets.
The bowls and archery clubs have poor facilities. There are no training nets for the cricket club. The fast growing netball club (over 40 members) has no home.
The community sports hub proposal costs the taxpayer no money at all. It is completely self-funding. It will provide the town with a legacy that will fulfill sports needs for generations. It will be similar to facilities that other towns such as Calne and Chippenham already enjoy.
The community sports hub will include state of the art all weather pitches, well maintained grass pitches, plenty of parking and a club house with changing, toilet and café facilities.
We also need as many people as possible to go on to the Bradford on Avon council website to support with comments online via the survey at http://www.bradfordonavontowncouncil.gov.uk/consultation/index.html and / or at the following venues: Bradford on Avon Town Council Offices Bradford on Avon Town Library The Hub (Church Street) Tourist Information Centre Sainsbury’s Café (Please note in order for comments to be considered they must contain your name and address which will be disclosed only to the Examiner.) We (BTYFC) are targeting 1,000 supporting comments.
