The Friends of Maidenbower Junior School is £100 richer after being commended by the PTA-UK1 Gold Star Awards for its Pizza Days which have raised money for projects including a large polytunnel so pupils can grow their own fruits and vegetables.

Elizabeth Whyman, chair of the friends said: “You can tell how much the children enjoy it because when the Year 3s visit the new intake of children to help with their transition to junior school, they give Pizza Day as an example of something they can look forward to.”
