Welcome to Friends of Ashbrook!
The Friends of Ashbrook is primarily a fund-raising group - we have raised thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance the children’s education and the facilities of the school in general.
But we are much, much, more than just a fund raising group. We aim to provide a closer links between home and school, bringing together staff, parents and friends in support of the school. We do this by:
• Fundraising to enable Ashbrook to purchase equipment and resources
• Organising social events for Ashbrook children and their families
Our main purchase this year has been the new log cabin enjoyed by all the children during Forest School sessions.
We take great pride in the additional facilities we are able to provide for the children. Mrs Sharples and the Ashbrook staff always have other things on the list that would benefit our children, so please join us and help us to raise money to buy them…..
Everyone is welcome to join the Friends of Ashbrook, parents, extended families and anyone with an interest in supporting the school. Don’t worry if you don’t know anyone on the ‘Friends’, we are always pleased when new people join us and will do our best to make you feel welcome.
The Friends of Ashbrook have had a lot of success thanks to the parents, friends and staff of the school.
We look forward to hearing from you.

How can you help?
There are lots of ways that you can help and support your child through the ‘Friends’. Offering to help before events, or at other times during the year is so valuable – it really is a case of ‘many hands make light work’. It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, or even if you can’t come into school. There are always little jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare, e.g. wrapping gifts, preparing raffle tickets etc. We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the help of supportive friends and parents like you.
Please let us know if you have any contacts or skills we could use… everything is potentially valuable to us. We are always grateful to receive donations, maybe you work for a company who provide matched donations, or who would be willing to donate prizes for raffles or burgers for the summer fayre - remember every little helps.
Don’t worry if you can’t attend the meetings, if you would like to know more about what we do or how you can help please leave your details at reception or e-mail us at FriendsofAshbrook@gmail.com
