CASH­ING IN: As­so­ci­a­tion raises £40,000 for school

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

KINGSNORTH Pri­mary School par­ents cel­e­brated three spec­tac­u­lar years of fund-rais­ing with a wine and cheese evening. The school’s Par­ents and Friends As­so­ci­a­tion (PFA) has raised £40,000 for the school in that pe­riod. The money has helped pay for com­put­ers, im­prove­ments to the play­ground, school pan­tomimes, as well as leavers’ events ev­ery year. Tues­day night marked a chang­ing of the guard for the PFA, as the board of the past three years stepped down. De­part­ing chair­man Sarah Court said: “It’s been fan­tas­tic. I’ve met lots of friends, and I’ve had a fan­tas­tic team to sup­port me.” Sarah, who has two chil­dren, Am­ber, 10, and Fred­die, seven, at the school, is leav­ing to look af­ter her new­born son Char­lie. She will be re­placed as chair­man by vice-chair­man Natasha Fisk. Also stand­ing down are trea­surer Irene Greene and sec­re­tary Sarah Bax­ter. The new vicechair­man is Anne Ward, and the new sec­re­tary is Re­becca Ralph. A trea­surer has not yet been ap­pointed.
