Cawthorne Open Gardens : 22/23 June 2019 
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.

Plants will be needed for the Garden Stall so if you are dividing perennials, weeding out plants that have seeded or sewing annuals please consider potting up some of these and caring for them until June.  Plants will need to be taken to the Village Green early on 22 June or collection can be arranged in the week before the event.

The Methodist Church are currently in the process of updating the schoolroom and kitchen.  As part of this they are doing a series of fund-raising events of which this is one.  We are running an auction of promises which involves people and businesses offering either a service or an item to be auctioned off.  The "promises" and their sponsors will be advertised on the church's website.  Nearer the day a copy of the items under the hammer with sponsors will be distributed round the village.  Please be part of this.  Ticket details will be in next month's issue.  If you are interested in making a donation please Helen Morris or Margaret Cooper on cawthornemethodistchurch@gmail.com  It is a great cause and worth your support!

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 fundraising.org.uk 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.
