Bacon Butties

A quieter day today but you still managed to raise a very respectable £226. Thank you!

Can you help?

The BHCC relies on parent participation to ensure successful events. Every parent at Barrow Hills is automatically a member of the Committee and very welcome to come to meetings or pop an idea over. We hope that you continue to support us, beginning with the events planned for the rest of this term. If you feel you can help please contact your rep (see details below), David Brydon or if volunteers are needed you can sign up on Classlist when the event is published.

If you have any questions please contact David Brydon on davidbrydon1992@googlemail.com
