Friends of Chilwell
FRIENDS OF CHILWELL CROFT ACADEMY
Friends of Chilwell Croft Academy are a group of parents with common experiences and goals, working with and supporting Chilwell Croft Academy and the community in general.
Friends of Chilwell Croft Academy meet on a regular basis during the school year to plan, organise and facilitate various events such as fund-raising and social activities. We also use these opportunities to share experiences and information with each other; thus leading to increasing enrichment and fellowship within our community. Our coffee mornings and summer fairs have been well supported.
Thanks to all who have volunteered and supported these events!
If you are a parent who would like to join us on this quest to create associations, strengthen relationships, and develop bonds within the community, please contact the school office on 0121 464 3402 or speak to the committee of members of Friends of Chilwell Croft Academy.
