The Red Maids Society exists to keep former pupils and staff of the Red Maids' School, Bristol, in touch with each other and to share news of the School and of other old girls around the world. We currently have almost 1,300 members, many of whom live in Bristol or the South West.
The Summer 2015 magazine is now available to members by post or on by logging on to the newsletter page.
Our Review of the year & AGM report is available in two formats.
See booking form opposite for the October Tea, our Whitson Celebration Lunch in November, or to register your interest in next year's events.
We are looking for new Committee members to take over some key jobs in 2016. The Membership Secretary's post has now been filled, but we are still looking for a Gifts Officer and an Events Organiser.
Please take a look at the roles available on our Committee page, and then view the 'job descriptions' link on the same page.
Watch this space for news of the Society's 110th Anniversary celebrations next year.
We had record numbers at last autumn's events and the tours of the new facilities were a great success. Check out our gallery opposite for the new-look Burfield House (formerly the Main Building).
The Chairman's "Find Fiver" Appeal
Announced in the Summer 2014 magazine, this appeal has passed the £2,200 mark; one third of the total in one third of the time. Our target is to raise the equivalent of £5 from every member by May 2016 for a scholarship to help an external candidate join Red Maids' for the Sixth Form. See above right for the total so far and ways to donate, together with a link to the Gift Aid Form.
