PFA 100 Club

St Mary and St John Primary School, North Luffenham, is opening up its 100 Club to the village and inviting new people to join in and take part. This is a fantastic way to support your local school, whilst having a bit of a flutter!

For £12.00 per year (only £1.00 per month) you can take part in a monthly draw to win 3 prizes, from £10.00 – £25.00. After prize money, the remaining profit from the 100 Club goes to the school via the PFA to help fund equipment, resources and opportunities for the children.

There are a limited number of places available, but the good news is that anybody can buy a ticket, whether you live locally, are a parent, or a friend of the school, and you can buy as many numbers as you like!

Do you have…I say, do you have a Cockerel missing?

A close resemblance to the missing Cockerel

The real missing Cockerel moved to fast for the camera, so this is a close…ish photofit resemblance to the Cockerel that has gone AWOL.

Foghorn Leghorn (aka a Cockerel) has taken up residence in the school field, and it has..I say, it has now outstayed its welcome!

It must belong…I say, it must belong to someone, and the school would really like to see it leave!

If you know who…I say, if you know who the Cockerel might belong to, please ask them to contact the school office on tel: 01780 720184 to arrange collection.

…That’s all folks!
