It is with great delight that I can announce the wonderful news that the Centenary Campaign has now raised over £1M in donations, a significant milestone in our campaign.  This combined with the £500k donated by the school means that our grand total now stands at over £1.5M.    To date, 69 Brambletye families past and current alike, have contributed to the Centenary Campaign and we know that there are many more of you who intend to support our two big projects. 

 

As you will be aware the construction of the first of our two transformational projects, the Centenary All-Weather Pitch is almost complete.  If the weather goes in our favour we anticipate our first match taking place on the pitch early in the Spring and we look forward to inviting you to the official opening ceremony on Saturday 17th March 2018.  We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the Brambletye community in helping us make our dream of year-round sport training and fixtures a reality and we’d like to make the opening ceremony a very special celebration of this.  We will be sharing our plans for the format of the day with you as they are firmed up.   

 

In the meantime, we have taken on board very helpful feedback from Brambletye families regarding our planned art studio and library/resource-centre development and we hope to announce revised plans early in the New Year, together with the launch of our next phase of fundraising.
