FRIENDS OF CALDICOTT

SUMMER FETE 2017

Caldicott - Saturday 17th June 2017:  Thanks to everyone for coming to the Caldicott Summer Fete, to everyone that helped make it a successful day by running stalls, providing food and drinks and donating toys and sweet jars.  Your fabulous efforts have been rewarded with huge success all round and everyone had a brilliant time.  The Mad Hatters Tea party theme was reflected around the stalls creating a great atmosphere and a fun theme for the cake competition.

 

The boys who are boarding and running stalls raised £2417 - the winning stall was Hatters Sweetie Jar who raised £278.65 - well done boys.  The money will go to the boys chosen charity The Flying Seagull Project www.theflyingseagullproject.com/

The friends stalls raised £6568 and the silent auction raised £1200.  Some of the funds will be going towards the new PAC kitchen installation in the Centenary Hall kitchen that is taking place over the summer to enable boys to have cookery lessons.

GOLF DAY 2017

Stoke Park - Monday 12th June 2017:  The annual Friends of Caldicott Golf Day was held once again at the stunning Stoke Park Golf Club.  A big thank you to our hosts there, who managed a seamless day from start to finish.

The day started with delicious bacon rolls and coffee, giving players a chance to relax in the luxurious surroundings while eyeing up the competition.

The teams left with fingers crossed that the weather would hold out but glowing faces in the bar after the completion were proof that the sun had shined on the day after al!

The evening ended with a superb 3 course meal in the Fountain Room - Jonny Timms raised a glass to absent friends and presented the winners with their well deserved awards.

Best Team - Team 8 (Alex Maile, Stephen Ferneyhough, Charlied Morrison, Tony Russell)

Best Individual Man - Toby Courtauld

Best Individual Woman - Victoria Dover

Nearest the Pin - Theo Williams

TENNIS DAY 2017

Stoke Park - Tuesday 16th May 2017:  We were blessed with a  lovely sunny day - 18 mothers joined the fun at Stoke Park to play tennis.  Emma Cramner won the match day with Ailsa Pettersson winning the prize for best dressed.  A big thank you to BP Collins for donating our prizes.  We had a delicious 2 course lunch in the outside restaurant to complete the day.  Well done everyone.

QUIZ NIGHT 2017

On Thursday 2 February 13 teams sat excitedly in the Centenary Hall awaiting the annual Caldicott Quiz.  There were 2 tables of staff and 11 tables of parents.  Each table of 10 brought their own picnic dinner and had a fine selection of wines and waters to choose from the bar.  Our headmaster led us expertly through the series of tough questions, controlling the crowd at all times.  For extra points we were asked to put together a sphere and a cube from a collection of wooden pieces which was particularly challenging for some teams.  Each team had a joker to play but did they play it wisely?

The winning team was Clueless - well done!
