'Friends of Bidston Village' Parents Association

Friends of Bidston Village

'Friends of Bidston Village' (FOBV) are a group of supportive parents, members of the community and key staff who organise fundraising events for the benefit of our school. Various events are organised annually, to raise additional funds which are used directly for the benefit of our children. Some events are non-profit and are specifically organised for community well-being. 

Most recently this has been used to support playground improvements, providing resources and creating special experiences throughout the academic diary. An annual event is the non-profit Mothers Day and Fathers Day gift sale.

We are always looking for new members so if you are interested, please contact fobv@bidstonvillage.wirral.sch.uk

Our field regeneration project will create:

›Create a quiet natural environment.

›Provide opportunities for eco-awareness in natural surroundings.

›Improve an unloved and unkempt space into a beautiful oasis.

Our space will include:

›Zoned areas, including seating for private time, social space & reading.

›Outdoor classroom for the benefit of children and adults (including the local community accessing support through school)

›Calm spaces filed with planting offering focus for individuals with anxiety, improving mental health.

›Softened boundaries by planting a ‘fedge’ creating privacy for local residents.

›Natural and sensory areas inviting wildlife to benefit our environment and children to enjoy.

Edible Playgrounds

Edible Playgrounds

We're bringing the curriculum to life with food growing!
Edible Playgrounds transform school grounds into vibrant outdoor teaching gardens that inspire hands-on learning and get children excited about growing and eating healthy food.


They help improve health and well-being, open up access to nature, and provide a fun outdoor learning environment that supports cross-curriculum teaching.
