Every Sympathy to

Woodborough School 

after their devastating fire.

As many of you will have seen, the beautiful, unique and amazing Woodborough School was devastated by a fire on Friday 17th September. Over the next few days, weeks and months, the school, pupils, teachers and parents will need our support. Woodborough School PTA are raising funds to assist the school over this difficult period. The children have already been through a traumatic 18 months with COVID and were just getting back to a
 normal school routine.

You can make a difference to all the children of Woodborough school at this time by donating today to WOODBOROUGH SCHOOL PTA.

 The Churches Conservation Trust is the national charity saving historic churches at risk. The look after All Saints Alton Priors.  They have saved over 350 buildings which attract almost two million visitors a year. With their help and with your support they are kept open and in use – living once again at the heart of their communities. They operate the third largest heritage estate in charitable ownership in the UK. All of the churches in the collection are listed, mostly Grade I and II*, and some are Scheduled Ancient Monuments. These buildings might have disappeared, instead they are kept open and in use at the heart of the community. The churches remain consecrated and can be used for occasional worship.

Get ready to sing and dance, laugh and love all over again! Past and present intertwine as a pregnant Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is busy re-launching her mother’s taverna while husband Sky is away in New York.  Flashbacks transport us back in time to learn how the Dynamos came into being and how Donna (Lily James) met Sophie’s three putative fathers.
“It’s down to cannily cast diva Cher, playing Sophie’s maternal grandmother Ruby Sheridan, to really raise the roof as she does singing Fernando in duet with her lost love (played by Andy Garcia). The moment white-wigged Cher steps out of her helicopter on the jetty in that sparkling, sun-drenched bay, she owns the movie hook, line and sinker and virtually nothing else exists. Or at least until Meryl Streep appears singing My Love, My Life in that famous cliff-top church and instantly reduces the audience to floods of tears. In a replica of The Winner Takes It All showstopper in Mamma Mia!, it’s a stunningly bravura moment that will live long in the memory.”  Radio Times
“To sum it up in one easy sentence: if you loved the first film, you’ll certainly adore this one.”  The Upcoming
