raised of £3,000 target by 71 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,874 to 'Level the playing field' To provide better quality sports, exercise, P.E. and Play by levelling a 60x40 yard section of the school field...

    Callowell Primary School
    Funded on Saturday, 22nd May 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    We are so blessed with stunning views of the Stroud Valleys here at Callowell. Since 1969, we have welcomed many visitors - from Princess Anne to Bobby Robson: Olympic and professional athletes to Baronesses and MPs! Many Circus animals frequented our adjacent field in the 1970s and more recently Callowell has buzzed with performances, presentations, displays, charity events, tournaments, sports, exercise and even wedding receptions! Callowell really has seen it all - from helicopter landings to hot air balloon landings - even mobile climbing walls and caves!

    "What a lovely view!" A common phrase over the years......equally as common as the follow up comment... "If only your field was flat!"

    Well - we are going to make it happen! At least, a small section of it. We do not want to change our unrivalled view - just make a small section level enough for the children to enjoy better quality activities - on grass! If we have any funds left, these will be used for grounds repairs and maintenance - even if we only have enough left for a box of grass seed! Nothing will be taken for granted...

    We really hope you can help us - whatever you can spare is truly appreciated by our school community. Whether you can help or not...thank you for reading our story...

    Wayne and the entire Callowell Team

      ... Sadly, this page will soon close. We had planned to keep you updated regarding the opening of the area here so please keep an eye on our website: for details of this. The grass is slowly emerging so we hope that we can open the area within months! It has been truly humbling to feel so supported as a school community and we are truly grateful that after 52 years we will now have a, 'flat bit'! Thanks on behalf of us all at Callowell and hope to see you at the opening!

      Dear everyone - we just wanted to post a huge thanks for your support on this project. We have managed to complete the levelling within budget, due in large part to the kindness of people in offering voluntary labour and machinery! Please stop donating and save those pennies as we have enough left to complete any fills that may be required as the ground settles. There may even be some spare change to help with the outdoor learning area.

      Happy Friday everyone! This weekend we are back to work on some of the uneven areas. The weather has not really helped with the seeding but at least we have all had some sunshine to enjoy! Thanks for your support and please help us spread the word as we move towards our final target. Many Thanks, Callowell Team :-)
