Past Events and Activities





On 1st December 2018 we held our annual Friends of Ashley Christmas Bazaar, sponsored by Martin Flashman & Co.


The Ashley School community came together to kick off the festive season. It was a happy and magical day with so many highlights, not least the impromptu police escort for Father Christmas’ arrival!


There are far too many people to thank individually for their contribution to the day ... parents, friends and family, teaching staff, people from our broader community and of course the children themselves for their beautiful cakes and artwork, their talented performances and for sharing their school with us all.


The biggest thank you goes to everyone who supported the event and gave so generously.


Together we raised £15,000 which is simply phenomenal, and we and the school couldn’t be more grateful.





Thank you to all the parents who purchased Christmas cards this year. This generated £690 for our school. A big thank you to Bethan Seddon who co-ordinated the cards.





This year we are trialling Goodness Baked as the supplier of our Christmas Puddings. On offer were the Premium Christmas Pudding, Sticky Toffee Pudding and Gingerbread Christmas Trees. The supplier hopes to be able to offer a greater selection next year. This has raised £200 for our school. Many thanks to Jina Robinson for co-ordinating the puddings and to all the parents who have purchased puddings. Enjoy!



We wish you all a wonderful festive season.
