A new event this year for Menston Primary and FoMPS is a School Fun Run.
This is to help raise funds for a new pedestrian crossing outside school which is much needed for our village and children. We hope that you can all get behind us and support our events to help us to raise money for the crossing on Main Street. This would entail widening the pavements for some distance and installing a full permanent crossing. We have a target of £10K to raise and we have just over £2k so far that is earmarked for this project from our friends of Co-op initiative.
The fun run is the way we hope to raise the majority of that £8K that we need for the crossing. With the school’s partnership, we intend all pupils to gain sponsorship to run the daily mile track in house colours. Save the date Friday 22 Maybecause all parents and carers are invited to come and cheer on the participants as they run for road safety.
The men will have had their fun on the 25th April – this time its the ladies turn! On Saturday 6th June our annual mums’ / grandmas’ / auntie’s FoMPS Yomp will be taking place.
Full details to follow, but the rough idea is a walk to Ilkley and back taking in a few watering holes on the way. The cost is approx. £15 which includes a buffet meal in Ilkley, the rest goes to the school.
This event is always popular so please don’t leave it til the last minute! Thanks as always for your support.
