There are also the regular activities such as the Coffee and Croissant mornings, the Book Club and the tennis, badminton and swimming facilities.
If you have any suggestions for fun and interesting events and activities that we could put on please contact one of the committee members.
Bootham School Association AGM
Our Annual General Meeting takes place in October/November and is your opportunity to hear what we have all been up to and to get more actively involved if you wish and become a committee member or just volunteer if there is some area of particular interest.
