Alford Community Campus are delighted to welcome Jasper back to his customary spot outside our main entrance. Jasper suffered a wee injury last year but is now fully recovered and looking better than ever after receiving some TLC from sculptor, Helen Denerley. We thank Helen for looking after him so well. It is so good to have Jasper back with us and he is enjoying getting lots of pats on the head again – he is such a Good Boy!
Clothes Recycling Collection Points: For information, we wanted to share with the community that if using clothes recycling points such as the one in the Alford Campus carpark (to help raise funds for Alford Primary School Fund) to please not leave bags of clothing/textiles outside the container when it is full as these are not collected by the organisation responsible for emptying the containers and therefore it is effectively fly tipping. To ensure your textiles are recycled, please take them to an alternative recycling point when the container is full. Please spread the word in the local community. Thank you!
