The products on the Made By Us page are items designed and crafted from the ground up by our members, additionally any items that have been donated to us or worked on by our maintenance team can be seen on our Items For Sale page.

This is the best transition I have had for a student in the whole five years I have taught 6th formers!

To all the staff at About with Friday, I had a wonderful time with you guys, and I want to say a big thank you for looking after me. Love from K.

I am not sure what the different methods used are but please continue as you are, as life at the moment for us as a family is greatly improved because of your input.
