We now have our very own facebook page so please do give us a like. Search FOHC – Friends of Holy Cross. We aim to advertise all our events and upcoming meetings on the page so please look out for us.

We always need more people to join the FOHC.  As our children leave the school, so as members do we, and it would be a great shame if we couldn’t continue the great work that we do. We are all volunteers and fully understand that life is busy, and time is precious, but the more people we have on board, the less there is for people to do as jobs can be shared and we can all enjoy the events as well as helping out at them. Having new people brings new ideas and even if you can only help out at one of the events – you don’t realise how much that would be appreciated.

Please do get in touch at friendsofholycrossschool@gmail.com if you have any questions or would like to help in any way.

News:

Friends of Holy Cross have a long term project they are raising funds for. This is to create shaded areas around the playground and pitch. This is going to cost approximately £9000 so every event that you support is bringing us closer to reaching that goal.
