Local Events

We are often contacted by external providers etc, who send us information about local events and ask us to advertise them to our parents. If it is only 1 or 2 things, previously we have sent them out as attachments to our weekly Branston Bulletin, however we are acutely aware that this can mean that sometimes this document becomes very long!

We have come up with the solution of putting such information on this page of our website instead, and simply notifying you of this in the most relevant edition of our Branston Bulletin.
