June issue is always one of my favourite BN5’s to produce, with such lovely summery images and our what’s on pages starting to fill with some exciting things to do outside. Gardens and Arts is almost upon us, this year there are even more arts events and some fabulous music to tempt you. Henfield’s trail of gardens is really like no other - there is something for everyone whatever your musical or horticultural taste. The biannual Summer Fayre takes place on Henfield Common this year, if you’re interested in exhibiting in the show tent please look at page 31. We’ll have much more information in July issue. The organisers would love to encourage as many children and adults to take part as possible, it’s a really fun thing to do so get involved and show off your craft skills, culinary prowess or even your green fingers! Organising the exhibits is a tricky thing, stoically undertaken by the ladies from the WI. Please remember to check the entry dates, your forms need to be in before the show itself so the ladies can register your cards and entries. If you are looking for a social way to get fit then turn to page 51 for an article about Henfield Joggers by Paul Crowe. This friendly group warmly welcomes new members, they believe running should be rewarding and pleasurable - many runs do end up in the pub at the end of the evening! Do join them if you are feeling energetic. Best wishes

777 fundraising team challenges are full on this year with their first one completed - the London North Tough Mudder in Kettering on May 4th. The team, consisting of Tracey Prescott, Laura Smith, Donna Stephenson and David Bloomfield, endured 12 miles of obstacles including fire, ice, mud miles and electric shocks!

News | JUNE 2013 JolFest Every year a group of parents, collectively known as the Jolesfield School Association (JSA) at Jolesfield Primary School in Partridge Green, hold a summer event to raise funds for the school. This year, we wanted to try something different to attract people to our school from outside of the school community as well. The inspiration for this years event came from one parents experiences at the Isle of Wight Festival, which not only offers entertainment for adults, but children as well. So we are very excited to be holding â€˜JolFestâ€™ on Saturday 15 June 2013! This is a family festival, starting at 12pm, with entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. As parents we are all too aware that taking children out to events can be a very costly experience, once you enter, generally everything inside will involve spending more money. So our aim has been to make the day not only fun, but affordable. There will be an entrance fee for the day, with an early bird rate if tickets are bought in advance and also a family ticket price. Once you enter the event, all of the entertainment will be free and will include: a circus workshop; magician; animal zoo; storytelling; hula hoop workshops; dance demonstrations; live bands; an arts and crafts tent; childrenâ€™s â€˜boot campâ€™; and a bouncy castle. As well as all of this free entertainment, there will be stalls, ice cream, a beer tent, the Pizza Oven and a BBQ. But it doesnâ€™t end there! After an afternoon of non-stop entertainment, there will be a â€˜Battle of the Bandsâ€™ running until 9pm, with live music from some very talented acts battling for first prize - a dayâ€™s free recording at Sound Central Recording Studios in Bolney, West Sussex. For all details of the event, the acts that will be appearing, ticket prices and how to get there, please visit our Jolfest website: www.jolfest.com Nina Humphries

St Peterâ€™s School Governorâ€™s Award 2013 At St Peterâ€™s School we have wonderful pupils who excel not just in academic learning but also in sport, in the arts, within the Scout Association and Girl Guiding UK and lots of other activities. Last year we launched a new award â€“ The Governorsâ€™ Award â€“ to recognise a pupil who embodies the schoolâ€™s values, and the award was won by Ewan Brown, who was a very popular, vibrant and worthy recipient of the award. The two runner-ups were Mollie Tremewan for her dedication to St Johnâ€™s Ambulance as well as Abigail Clancy for her enthusiastic work at ChArt. This year The Governorsâ€™ Award will be presented to a pupil who embodies the values and promises of our school. It could be someone who has shown particular tenacity, resilience, kindness or courage. It doesnâ€™t need to be someone who is outstanding in an area of sport, academia, or the arts - although it could be. It could be that they perform random acts of kindness or do something in the community that is particularly noteworthy. They may have overcome a problem and so demonstrate resilience or they persevere with something that is difficult and show determination and tenacity. They may have shown great courage in doing something. The school will be seeking nominations from Parents and Carers, from Teachers and teaching assistants and also from the wider community. If a pupil of the school has done something noteworthy out of school then we would love to hear about it. Do you know a child attending St Peters who has done something deserving of this award? If so, please can you write to or email the school Governing body with a brief explanation. All nominations will be considered by the school governors and the winner will be announced in July.
