Occasionally, the local press may wish to use photographs to celebrate events happening in school.

At St Christopher’s School, Langford Everyone Welcome!
The Langford toddler group have previously used our school hall on Tuesday mornings from 9.30 am until 11.30 am for their Parent and Toddler sessions. The group seems to have dwindled and currently our hall remains unused during this time on a Tuesday morning. Are their any parents or carers who would be interested in reforming this session and using our facilities? Does anyone have an alternative idea for using this time and space that would serve our families and community in a better way? Please contact the school office to arrange a time to meet and discuss your ideas with me. Carol Phillips Acting Headteacher

Tuesdays from 9.30am to 11.30am

Tel : 01993 843535, Ext 6150 / tickets@brizetheatre.co.uk
