RIBBON CUT: MP officially opens uniform shop at Hemel Hempstead school

 Published on: 13th July 2023   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Sir Mike Penning, MP for Hemel Hempstead, visited Belswains Primary School to formally open their pre-loved uniform shop on Monday, July 3.

Chris Turrell, secretary of the school’s parent teacher association (PTA), said: “This has been the brainchild of Jenny Batchelor (PTA chair), where parents can donate outgrown good-quality uniforms to be resold at discounted prices, thus helping parents, but also raising essential funds for facilities required by the school and its pupils.”

Sir Mike MP added: “It was lovely to visit Belswains School on a sunny Monday morning to open their new uniform shop. This project really is a win-win for everyone, and I was very impressed with the layout and organisation of the shop.

“A dedicated and committed PTA, like here at Belswains, is a real bonus in helping a school thrive. It is also a great way for new parents to get involved and support their child’s education and meet other local people.

“The children were delightful as well, of course, and clearly happy at school.”
