A big thank you from Friends Of Sandown to all of the staff, teachers, governors, parents and grandparents that made the fireworks possible.
Without the help running the bbq, serving hot drinks, running the tuck stall, dancing on glow, face painting, keeping families safe on the barrier or giving a warm welcome at the gate the fireworks would not of been possible.
Thank you again!

Sandown Summer Colour Run
Sandown's PTA organised a Summer Colour Parade on Sunday 7th July and what an event it was!!
The aim of the Colour Run was to bring the community together and to have some fun.
There was music, ice cream, food, photo opportunities and laughs galore. It was definitely an event not to be missed.
It was an untimed running event where runners and walkers were doused from head to toe in a different coloured powder.
It catered for everyone- runners, walkers, children, adults, grandparents and families.
