A huge thank you to all parents, carers, teachers and pupils who helped out, not just on the day, but also in the lead up, by bringing in chocolates, sweets and bottles for our tombolas, for helping us to get raffle prizes donated, and those who have helped make crafts to sell. Thank you too to those who were kind enough to have estate agent’s boards up to advertise the fair.
This year we started early at 2.30pm to allow parents and carers the opportunity to have a look around in relative peace before picking up their children and coming back to enjoy it with them. We had a wide range of stalls for all to enjoy; tombolas, books, Christmas gifts, toys, lucky dip, food (samosas, sausage rolls and vegetarian pasta), drinks (including mulled wine!). We were even lucky enough to have Santa visiting, so children could visit him in his grotto and receive a present. We even had a few stalls outside this year in the KS2 playground which can now be easily accessed from the main hall thanks to the new doors!
Thanks to all those who came along and supported the event and helped us raise £2,300, an increase of £700 on the previous year! What a fantastic result. We hope you enjoyed it and we welcome any feedback on how to make it even better in the future. The money raised will be used to benefit all our children at the school.
