1st Planning Meeting for Cawthorne Open Gardens : 22/23 June 2019
Although this seems a long way off, it's never too soon to start planning!  This event draws people from miles around and its continued popularity has provided a substantial income to help sustain the Parish Church building.  For the 2019 event we would like to include new gardens, as well as old, so if you think you would like to take part, let us know.  Your garden does not have to be of showcase standard, it just has to be interesting - quirky, unusual, big or small.  Just as importantly, a successful event needs plenty of volunteers, so if you feel you haven't a suitable garden, please offer to lend a hand - there will be plenty to do, with catering, parking, programme selling, assisting in the gardens, all needing willing hands.  We want Open Gardens to be a real village event, as inclusive as possible, so that not only the Church will benefit, but also the many shops and organisations the village enjoys.  It will be hard work but we aim to make it enjoyable so all taking part can look back on pride on a worthwhile weekend.

Parents' Association need help from Online Shoppers!
We have recently joined the easy fundraising group and we are now appealing for all
online shoppers to help our cause.  We are a small rural school which sadly is missing out
on funding from the government and council due to our location and the type of pupils we
attract.  Therefore we are always looking for ways to fund our school with equipment and
basic needs.  Everyone can help and even those with no connection to the school.  
Please go online, login to easy and find our school's name - Cawthorne Primary School
Everytime you shop with over 3,000 sites, we will get a percentage of your shop e.g. Asda,
Argos, Ebay, Travel companies, insurance etc. at no extra cost to you.  
Everyone who shops online can help. 
Thank you.
