New Volunteers are always welcome

The small organisational committee generally meet informally twice a term. If you would be willing to offer some time helping to plan particular events (even if only once a year), please contact Emma Town.

The Friends of Holmwood House are always appreciative of help and have compiled a list of people who would be willing to help at events. If you would like to volunteer your services or find out more about what is involved, please contact Emma Town or email:

Our aim is to ensure that all parents and children are given as many opportunities as possible to meet one another socially and to be involved in the school events held each year, whilst raising funds for school projects.

2023 Summer Fete Raffle Prizes

We have some fantastic prizes up for grabs in the raffle all kindly donated by Holmwood parents and local businesses including aesthetics and private fitness services, a sausage making workshop, tickets to local attractions & services, overnight stays, uses of beach huts, pet services, paint balling experience, and a variety of hampers to name a few. We’ve even been donated some corporate cricket hospitality and a two night lodge stay in Aldeburgh so we’ll be auctioning these incredible prizes off at the fete after the Holmwood Rock Band turn up the tempo on the day.
