About Us

Friends of Meadowside are a group of people who come together to raise money to support Meadowside School. Anyone can be a friend of the school and we rely on our parents and grandparents to help us at events either by attending or providing support! This can be selling cakes, helping man a stall at the Christmas Fair or donating clothes for a jumble sale for instance! We even helped fund this website!

Friends of Meadowside were formed to fundraise for the benefit of the pupils at school. Friends of Meadowside is also a way for parents to become more involved with the children's school. Working in partnership with the school can help develop strong links between home and school. We are always looking for new parents who want to get involved in whatever way they can. This could be coming into meetings to help generate ideas, assist in project-managing one of the events, or just letting us know your thoughts and ideas. It could also mean helping out at a particular event or just coming along as a participant and having fun, meeting new people and helping raise much needed funds.

Friends of Meadowside also aims to get involved in the wider community. For a number of years we have entered two teams into The Great Knaresborough Bed Race. With the help of sponsorship, this has proved to be a great fundraiser as well as a fantastic day out for those involved.
