Consultation is underway that could potentially cause the closure of Rowdeford School.. Please go to our Blog to read the Trusts position on this threat.
Rowdeford Charity Trust raises money needed to fund projects to advance the education of children with special educational needs.
The Trust has helped to fund innovative projects using resources within the Rowdeford School campus that could not otherwise take place. Over the years there have been many successes but, of course, there is always the need for more. The Trust has been working with the school to build an Outdoor Learning Centre in the woodlands adjoining the school. A tremendous opportunity to use and share outdoor skills and learning to break down barriers between people with special needs, the wider community and workplaces. After the terrific fundraising it is now open !
The next Rowdeford Garden Fair is Sunday 19th May 2019
Rowdeford Garden Fair started in 2006 and each year attracts more visitors.
There is always a wonderful selection of plants for sale from individual nurseries and you can get specialist advice on what you buy, plus it is a fun day out for all the family. Refreshments are available throughout the event - teas snacks and more substantial food, plus of course the Pimm's Tent.
The 2018 Garden Fair was very successful for those who came and enjoyed the atmosphere and expert advice from those who grow the plants. We expect to have raised some £11,000 for the Charity Trust, wh0 do so much to support the school and its pupils. An excellent scholl that deserves the support of the community.
There are 15ft stalls at £40 on either grass or hard-standing, plus the opportunity of having a larger stall on hard-standing at £75. These will be suitable for heavier items such as pots and garden furniture. As in previous years, we will ask for a voluntary contribution on takings over £200.
