Barton Garage Sale will be on Saturday June 6th. We had around 50 participants in 2018 and just over a 100 in 2019. For those new to this, here's how it works: Have a scout around your gaff and collect up your old tat you no longer want. Set up some tables, or ground sheets, out side your house and bung it all on there. Things will get underway at 9am on Saturday 6th June (assuming the weather is ok and we're not all dead) and tends to fizzle out around 1/2pm.

This event is only publicised on Facebook, so if you don't use that, just ping me an email at bryan_lade@yahoo.com with your house number and Road name and I will add you to the seller location maps on Facebook.

The school has been open since 2015 and in September will have 11 classes. The school was inspected by Ofsted in 2018 when it was judged to be a good School and also had a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist ( SIAMS) likewise it was judged to be good. More information can be found on our website www.hayfieldcross.org.uk

At the present time we have one vacancy for a Foundation Governor and know that in September that there will be two further vacancies. At the present time we have Foundation Governors from three different churches.

Our Governing Board is made up of 2 parent governors, 2 staff governors and 1 Local Authority governor and 7 Foundation Governors. The role of a Foundation Governor is important and complex; acting as a critical friend of the school, supporting staff, ensuring the school operates effectively meeting legalities linked to admissions, staff appointments, RE and Collective Worship. The term of office is usually four years.

The Governing Board needs people with a range of skills from the workplace, any foundation governor. Many people find that governorship offers an opportunity to serve the community and gain a great deal of satisfaction from bringing their own skill and experiences to the many issues that face the Church School.

The Governing Board meets about 4 times a year and committees meet 3 times a year. Governors are expected to visit the school to monitor areas of responsibility.

Thank you for reading so far, if you are interested in becoming a member of our Governing Board then contact the Chair of Governors (Helen Cracknell) via email governors@hayfieldcross.org.uk or through the school website contact page.

Further information about the role can be found on the Peterborough Diocese website:

Barton Seagrave community Garage Sale will take place on Saturday September 15th @ 10am.

So far we have 36 sellers dotted around the village.

It's free to do. For anyone who isn't familiar with Garage Sales - you don't actually need a garage (though helps if it rains!), just set tables/ground sheets outside your house, gather up all the old tat that's lying around your house and put it out for sale! Simples & fun!

See the Facebook Barton Seagrave Communication Group...


...for more details or contact us here to add your address as a seller. Just need your street and house number.
