November
Saturday 3rd – Hexham bonfire & fireworks night. Hexham Round Table, who are responsible for organising the event, have kindly offered the PTA some donation bucket shaking opportunities on the evening in return for a cut of the takings.

December
Thursday 13th – Christmas Movie Night, 6-8pm, Fellside hall. All year groups invited. More details to follow after half term
Thursday 13th & Friday 14th – Christmas gift pop-up shops at lunch break in Fellside hall. Pupils can bring £2 to buy a secret gift for a friend or family member and have it wrapped ready to put under the tree. We would be very grateful for any unwanted gifts you could donate towards the shop (no alcohol or alcoholic liqueurs please!) they can be brought into school from 6th December, so please get collecting and keep them safe for now! Thank you.
