Autumn Newsletter 2019

Dear FMCA Members and Supporters,

Thank you to all those who took part in the summer term events – St Georges Fayre, Picnic in the Park, the Rotary concert at St Peters Church (which raised £684) and the Bandstand Concert. We played ‘Music from the Movies’ themed pieces and are grateful to all the local organisations involved for their sponsorship and donations. We are playing our usual festive Christmas music this term.

Many thanks to our website expert, Matthew, who is currently updating our website by giving it a new, improved look. We are looking to add a lot more information about FMCA and make it easier to access important information. We also intend to streamline our Facebook page and update it more frequently over this year.

Thank you also to Sophie, Henry and Adrian, who do a vital job in stocking and running the tuck shop as well as being front of house at concerts.

Can you help out?

We need occasional assistance with the tuck shop so that pressure is not just on one or two people every week if you can help out. The tuck shop is popular with children and adult players during break time. To help generate more income to cover costs without raising fees, we also need ideas for fundraising and help organising social events. Please speak to Nyree, Maxine or Harriet if you have ideas or can help organise something.

FMCA finishes after the concert on 7th December and starts again on 10th January 2020. Have a great Christmas!
