About Friends

“Friends of Cliddesden Primary school” is the charity that is run by parents and family members to help raise funds for use in extending and developing the learning experience of each pupil within the school. Friends is a great way of getting to know other families and staff whilst making a real contribution to the quality of school life for all.

There are a series of events carried out within the academic year, however our main event is the Summer Fete and BBQ with other smaller events run throughout the rest of the year. We are always looking for people to get involved in friends and put forward new and different ideas! Whether you can make meetings or not, any help is always appreciated.

The money that has been raised over recent years has been used to provide a subsidy for school trips, Books for the Library, Computer Equipment, resources, swimming lessons plus much more…

We hope you all get involved.

Summer Fete

On Saturday 9th July saw the return of our annual Family Summer fete and BBQ after a 2 years absence due to covid.  

There were old skool games (hook a duck, lucky dip, splat the rat), beat the goalie, meet and groom a pony and many other fun stalls.  We had over 130 people come and enjoy the fun in the glorious sunshine.  The support we had from our visitors was amazing and we thank everyone who came, helped and of course the event organisers who made it happen.  The Basingstoke Mayor came and officially opened our summer fete, he reshuffled his schedule to make it!  

We managed to raise an amazing £1728.
