Winter Wonderland thank yous

Is it really almost a week ago? A huge thank you to everyone who helped, donated raffle prizes, baked cakes, helped set up and clear away, took a stall or just came to support our Winter Wonderland Fair last Saturday. It was much appreciated!

The whole event was relaxed and enjoyable and in terms of fundraising was a big success, with takings of over £2100 before expenses, so it will be a big boost for PA funds. Most of our 50+ stallholders had a good day and are keen to come to our summer fete next May.

We hope you all enjoyed this event as much as we did – and thanks again! More pictures of the Fair were on the blog last weekend.

Joy Elsley, PA Chair

Plant Stall plea!

It looks like it’s going to be a glorious weekend coming up so, if you get the opportunity to spend some time in your garden, please have a ‘root around’(!) to see if you have anything you could donate to the fete’s plant stall.  Anything horticultural would be welcome. Please bring  them into school any day next week. The stall will be run by green-fingered Sue Brown, Mr Crump’s PA, who will welcome all contributions!
