Lateral Flow Tests for Families
Comic Relief 19th March
Please see weekly newsletter dated 26th Feb for full details but a quick summary is below.
The theme this year is ‘humour’ - we need the power of funny to turn laughs into lasting change. With this in mind, we plan to host a ‘Comedy Club’ style event in each class. The children can share their favourite jokes or a short comedy sketch and raise money at the same time.
Also non-uniform day, children may come into school wearing fancy dress. The red noses this year are 100% plastic-free and in the style of woodland creatures, so they may wish to choose an animal theme. Alternatively, Comic Relief are also promoting the ‘superhero’ theme, so that may prove attractive to some children. Please make your donations via ParentPay in the usual way.
Message from Hillam Parish Council
I'm writing to make you aware of an initiative that Hillam Parish Council is actively pursuing at the moment.
We are planning to take advantage of the Government's Gigabit Fibre Broadband voucher scheme. This scheme provides residents up to £1500 and businesses up to £3500 towards installation of fibre broadband direct to the property as part of the community initiative.
Openreach will work with us on producing a plan once we have identified the level of support for the initiative.To that end, we are canvassing, in the first instance, residents of Hillam to gauge interest. I have also reached out to Monk Fryston parish council as I'm aware that Monk Fryston has similar broadband issues.
Hillam Parish Councillor
