Mill Chase Academy

Community

At Mill Chase Academy we endeavour to be a part of our wider community by developing positive relationships with our parents and other community groups and partners.  This includes building closer links with our partner primary schools, agencies and services who support the school.

The Holme CE Primary School

Our hall lighting and ceiling are in a poor state - our children deserve more as do the community groups who use the hall each week. Our bid for Condition Improvement Funding was not granted by the Department for Education and while we have tried hard to make improvements ourselves through community DIY days, this last phase is more than we can manage on our own.

With help the hall will finally be worthy of our wonderful pupils and show them how much they are valued.

As the only school in Bordon applying for this funding, we would be grateful for your vote on the following website:

Bordon Future Skills Centre

Basingstoke College of Technology has been commissioned by Hampshire County Council to deliver a comprehensive range of construction courses at its new Future Skills Centre in Bordon.  The centre which opened in September 2017 is a £3.8 million facility designed to meet the skills demands of employers in the construction industry.

The College will be offering general construction, brickwork and carpentry courses alongside apprenticeships and part time construction related programmes.  Courses will range from level 1 right up to HNC/HND for more advanced students.  Although the focus will be on training for the construction sector, the centre will also become a local hub for technical training and will host a broad adult and community learning programme for the wider community.

It’s not too late to apply for a full time course or an apprenticeship at the Bordon Future Skills Centre.  For more information including how to apply, visit our website bcot.ac.uk, email us at nextyear@bcot.ac.uk or call us on 01256 306679.

Cats Protection Haslemere

The Haslemere Adoption Centre accepts Cats for Re-Homing from Various Sources, including Local CP Branches, other Feline Rescue Organisations and the General Public.  Newly arriving Cats are assessed and any necessary Veterinary Treatments are carried out.  Staff work very hard to reduce any high stress levels and seek to match individual Cats with a New and Loving Home.

Potential Adopters are welcome to visit The Centre during our Normal Daily Opening Period 11.00 am - 3.00 pm apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day & New Years Day when The Centre is closed.

We at cats protection do rely on volunteers to help us on a day to day basis, we have many different volunteer opportunities available at our centre.  We have DofE students come to us for their voluntary hours which is a brilliant experience for young people working towards their award.  Also general volunteering varies from morning cleaning sessions and socialisation to afternoon “cat cuddling” which is vital for reducing the stress and encouraging our more nervous cats out of their shell.  We also have foster and fundraising opportunities available if you were interested in a more behind the scenes role.”

If you are interested in adopting a cat, it is best to make an appointment for viewing.  Cats available for adoption are advertised on our website - See our "Adopt a cat" page - or on our Facebook page “Cats Protection Haslemere” or you can call us but on our busy days sending us an email would be a better way to contact us.
