We have a new committee and we would like to introduce our new members and their roles within Friends of Chalgrove
Paul Joslyn: Chair
Hi, I'm Paul Joslyn chair of Friends of Chalgrove and father of Ben in year 5. I've lived in the village since 2004, but was born and bred in Goring, so I haven’t strayed far. I have worked for Xerox for 30 years and currently mostly from home, which I am hoping will allow me to help at some of the day time events. I wasn't planning on taking the chairmanship, I just wanted to get a bit more involved in the local community, but as no one else wanted the job, I'm happy to step up. Along with my fellow committee members, you can rest assured that we’ll do our best to continue the excellent work our predecessors have done and raise lots of money for all our children.
Kelly Fraser: Vice Chair
Hello, I'm Kelly Fraser and I'm Vice Chair of the committee. I have two daughters that attend Chalgrove Primary, Fearne in year 5 and Jessamyn in Year 2. I've lived in Chalgrove since the age of 3 and I went to Chalgrove school myself! I'm looking forward to being involved with Friends of Chalgrove to help raise as much money as possible.
Clare McCarthy: Secretary
Hi, my name is Clare McCarthy I am Mum to Niamh who started in Reception in 2017. I moved to Chalgrove in 2007 and have loved living here.
I currently work in the technical training section of a large power generating company and have worked in the operations teams of a number of power stations over the years in different locations. I am enjoying my time on the FOC committee and look forward to us raising more funds for the school and facilitating lots more fun activities in the future.
Treasurer - Claire Mant
Hello, I'm Claire Mant and I am the new treasurer. I am mum to William in year 1 and I have a 3 year old (April) who can't wait to go to school! I work part time in the cosmetic industry developing and regulating the different products. We moved to Chalgrove in August 2015 and due to the lovely welcome received I wanted to give something back to the school and village so I have joined Friends of Chalgrove.
Ju Lawrence: IT Communications
Hi I'm Julia Lawrence, mum to Harry in year 4 and George in year 1. I am also the school gardener and a Phoenix Trader, which I often use to raise money for the school at events. I'll be looking after the Facebook Friends of Chalgrove group and web based fundraising. I too went to Chalgrove primary school myself! I'm positive, that with your help, we can raise lots of money for the school.
