Who are Friends of Brookside?

Whether you have been with the school for some time or have little ones in Brookside Nursery, Crispin Nursery or in Early Years, it's time to get involved!  Friends of Brookside is a charity, established purely to enhance the educational experience of our children. We run fun events such as Barn Dances, Pamper Evenings, Cake sales, Easter events, Summer/Christmas fairs and many more. 

These raise funds to subsidise various activities organised by the school. Regular contributions are made to schools trips, equipment and even the school crossing staff. Larger 'one-off' projects include the landscaping at the rear of the school and the new school Minibus. 
You can find more information at the bottom of this page. If you want to offer your time, however little, please contact a committee member (see 'Meet the Committee' below), come to the next meeting or join and post on our  Facebook group! 



Friends of Brookside are now on Facebook!
