Iwade News  on Friday 28 October 2016
Click on the image of the barn to read more about what's involved ...
Were you disappointed you didn't get involved in the recent DIY SOS project on the island well now is your chance to get involved in Iwade! After many months (years) the Iwade barn is ready for work to start on the internal alterations now that the Iwade@TheBarn trust has obtained Listed Building and Building Control consent. Local company Knauf has kindly said that they will donate materials and may also be able to help with labour but we are going to be reliant on other trades and expertise to complete the task ahead and get the barn ready for use. None of the trustees are professionals with this sort of project and if anyone is willing to help we would like to know. We already have a list of people who have come forward offering help and we’ll be contacting them at some point soon.

Iwade School Admissions Consultation
Click on the image to read the consultation document for the proposed admissions criteria for Iwade School for the September 2018 intake. Of note the Directors of the Timu Academy Trust would like to indefinitely give priority to children living within the parish of Iwade at the time of their application over and above distance/nearness of children’s home to school. This ensures that those children living in the more rural areas of Iwade are not denied places by those from other parishes that may be geographically closer. Also of note it transpires that Slaughterhouse Point is not in the Parish of Iwade ;-) Who knew?! On a serious note if you have comments on the consultation document email - consultation is open now and closes 15th November 2016
