Our ‘Reunited’ themed Autumn Fair is just a month away, and things are coming together for the biggest fundraiser of the school year.
We have our traditional range of rooms including our very popular Toy room, Beauty room, Boutique, Bric a Brac, relaxing Holistic treatments and Books. We have our famous spine-chilling haunted house, not to mention all the delicious food on offer.
It’s always a great day out, so be sure to put the date in your diary. If you have never been to the schools Autumn Fair, you are in for a real treat.
If you own, run or help out in a business that could provide a prize for our raffle please email Carol Plummer ([email protected]). Our raffle team are asking you to explore all options. No item is too big or too small.
- CAKES AND BAKES
We need lots of tasty home-baked goodies for our food room and café. Anything goes, cakes, buns, sandwiches, pies, quiches, salads etc. NO NUTS PLEASE INC PINE NUTS. There will be many food stalls to choose from on the day (Burgers/Hotdogs/Sweets/Popcorn/Hot Chocolate/Soup/Sandwiches/Baked Goods) so families can come for lunch!
- ADVANCE BOOKINGS
There will be advance bookings taken for the Holistic area and for the photographer. More to come later.

We will need lots of items from that clear-out of the house you have been planning! Toys, bric-a-brac, books, clothes, arts, and crafts can be dropped into the school in due course. We’ll let you know when a bit closer to the time. The more we have, the better it will be.
