Boarder Parents’ Association (BPA)

It’s all systems go for our Cow Pat Lotto being run on Sunday afternoon. Nellie is on her way to Westminster so ready and raring to go! There are only a third of the 100 tickets remaining so we expect it will be a sell-out. You can buy your tickets through: https://www.trybooking.com/BPQZJ.

Plus…don’t forget our famous oyster bar, which will be set up at WestFest – straight from our past boarder families at Smoky Bay – amazing as always!
