Welcome to Friends of Pickle Frogs!
Friends of Pickle Frogs is the fund raising committee for Glebe Infants and Picklenash Junior School and we would like to offer you a warm welcome to our page. We hope you will find lots of useful information about our fundraising activities and events. Friends of Pickle Frogs are a combined charity made up of the former FROGS at Glebe Infants and PSA at Picklenash. The two charities have been joined together in the spirit of our new Federated schools to enhance the fundraising capacity and people power to run events within our school community and the community of Newent.
Friends of Pickle Frogs contributes in a number of ways to enhance the social, emotional and learning experience the children have at both schools and include funding school books, our outdoor learning area, school trips, equipment in both playgrounds and learning equipment in our classrooms.
We are always happy to see new members and friends, so if you would like to become involved you will be made very welcome. The meetings are generally held once every six weeks which are informal and friendly with tea and biscuits to enjoy. If you can support at any events or want to join us at our meetings let the office staff know or look out for the committee members around the school. Our future meetings and events will be updated on this webpage.
