Friends Of Windmill Hill
Friends of Windmill Hill (sometimes also known as the Parent-Teacher Association or PTA) hold events for the children of Windmill Hill and raise money for the school.
Over the last year we have held school discos for the children, the Summer Fayre, the Christmas Fayre, Frozen Fridays, book club, an Easter event, Mother's Day and Father's Day gift making and family bingo.
In the 2015-16 school year we raised more than £11,000 with which we have bought the colourful new benches for the children's playgrounds, the two new multi-sport activity walls, the paint and paintbrushes for the games markings on the school playgrounds, the library refurb and we also contributed towards a Christmas pantomime that all the children enjoyed in school. This year we have already committed over £3000 towards new school books and we are planning to contribute to the pantomime again, as well as other improvements to the indoor spaces at school, including reading areas in classrooms.
Because we raised more than £5000 last year we have become a registered charity, this will mean we can benefit from gift-aid, apply for charity grants etc. and will be subject to auditing of our financial accounts. We are currently going through the process of registering.
All parents/carers of the children in school, and all school staff are automatically members of Friends of Windmill Hill, other community members and grandparents/relatives can also ask to be members.
The business of Friends of Windmill Hill is conducted by a committee of volunteer parents/carers. The committee is elected each year at an Annual General Meeting to which everyone is invited. We welcome everyone's involvement. You are very welcome to join us at our monthly committee meetings, or, if you cannot afford that much time, we are always looking for volunteers to help out with our events.
The easiest thing you can do right now to support us is to start using Easy Fundraising where at no cost to you, every time you buy anything online, the company you are buying from makes a donation to us. They even have a free app you could download, which makes it super easy.
