The Friends of St Andrews, Great Linford

 

 

CHRISTINGLE CANDLES
 

Traditionally the children of St. Andrews have had their real Christingle Candles for the

Christingle service - (partly funded by The Children Society) -  made by the same two church volenteers.  

After many years these church volunteers have passed the responsibility to The Friends (The Children’s Society are still partly funding).

  

The Christingle Candle tradition has been practiced since 1747 and the children will be learning  the symbolism behind the candles and their decorations in school.

 

This year we hope that as many of you as possible will join us for a fun working party in the Nags Head pub

– Great Linford,  

on the

Friday 11th  December,

from 7pm

to make them

and share the odd mince pie!

 

Thank you so much in advance for your generosity both of your donations and your company.

 

If you wish to find out more about the work of the Children’s Society both in the UK and abroad to help tackle the effects of child poverty please see their website-

Friends of St Andrews

Who are we?

We are parents, staff, grandparents and anybody else who is interested in supporting the school. We have a small committee to try and co-ordinate events. Over the past year a large number of people have organised events, not just the committee, which is great.

What do we do?

Our aims are to

  • Raise money to support the school. For example subsidising school trips so that all children can go on them, paying for special equipment the school would like.
  • Organising social events outside of school so that parents and the children meet up and have fun together, thereby building a stronger community.
  • Promoting the school. Some of our events are especially targeted towards young children and run as a way of inviting families to see our school.

What sort of events have we held?

During the Autumn term we usually hold a social event, often a disco, but not always!

Traditionally we hold a Christmas Fete in December. For the last couple of years this has involved a magic show for the children. A number of our international families have also shared their Christmas traditions.

One of our biggest fund raising events is running a coconut shy at the Great Linford Waterside Festival in June.

Twice a year we sell bedding plants. The nursery we work with supplies beautiful plants.

Other popular events are:
