We hope to be able to offer indoor rowing, swimming, archery, golf, croquet, face-painting, tennis, boccia, yoga, football, basketball, badminton, music and art as well as traction engine rides around our grounds.

In the past this has been a very happy and successful event, and we hope you will be able to attend. Our grounds are open for picnics from 1.30pm; activities will begin at 2pm (please register in the Two Acre Club from 1.45pm onwards) and close at 4pm.

To enable us to plan the event, I would be most grateful if you could indicate your interest by emailing, phoning or completing and returning the reply slip (please contact Maggie or Laura Tilley for a copy), by 9 March.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us.

Our staff and pupils very much look forward to welcoming you.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
