Please help funding campaign for Horsington Church School

The school has recently launched a fundraising campaign to repair and decorate most of its classrooms. As a matter of fact, the school needs the help of the local and wider community to reach the budget that it needs to complete the works as the school’s budget simply can’t cover such costs at the moment. It is very easy to donate – it will only take a few minutes of your time – and any amount will represent a great contribution to the cause. Ultimately, the school would also accept donations of materials and labour if you are in the position of doing so! Some professional expertise is also needed of course, so if you are in the building trade and think you can help, please do get in touch.

To donate, please go on www.donatemyschool.com and enter the name of the school.

If you need further information, you can contact the school by email office@horsington.bwmat.org or by phone 01963370358

Horsington open has a record entry but needs 2 more players

The Horsington Open tees off next Saturday with a record 49 entries.

Mathematicians will quickly spot that this is a number not divisible by four.

So we need another 2 or 3 (preferably high handicap or beginners) to complete a foursome.

Don’t be shy, come on down!

It’s a great competition, lots of fun, and all are welcome.

And it’s in aid of 2 very good local causes.
