Committee Members 2023 - 2024

As committee members, we work with a clear purpose towards 3 shared goals.

We exist to:
1. Create amazing memories for the children of Bell Farm.
2. Raise funds for the school.
3. Build a community.

In keeping with the school ethos across Bell Farm, we're also 'Proud to Belong'. To us that means creating a welcoming community that includes parents and carers, staff, and members of the local community, working together to help achieve our purpose.

Joint Co-Chairs

Nicky Herringshaw

Hi I'm Nicky and I love being a Co-Chair of the Friends! I have two little ladies in the school in Year 3 and Year 5. I'm a single mum and run my own female-centric Physio Clinic in Hersham. I've always had a passion for bringing people together and working as a community to achieve great things. Since joining the Friends I have had the honour of working with an incredible group of parents, in what can only be described as a hugely supportive, fun and dynamic team. Together we have achieved so much in our first year as a Committee and I am excited for the future.

Kirstie Stewart

Hello, I'm Kirstie and I have loved being involved with Bell Farm ever since my children joined the school 6 years ago. I now have two children in Year 5, and I am currently working as a TA in Year 6 at Bell Farm. In my spare time I love cooking, running and most recently I've just started playing touch rugby! I absolutely love the team work involved in the Friends and I feel incredibly proud of the hard work that has gone into the amazing events this year. Bring on next year!

Ross Herringshaw

Hi I'm Ross, I have two daughters in the school in Year 3 and Year 5.


Lauren Gaydon
