Stories with Santa / Christmas Fair 2015

SantaOn December 17th we held our second “Stories with Santa” evening and our annual Christmas Fair. There was a great range of activities on offer for all the family and some great stalls selling a wide range of gifts. We also had a special Christmas story read by Santa and then children had the chance to visit Santa in his winter grotto.

A great time was had by  all. Thank you to Mrs. Daniels, Mrs Wakefield and all of the staff for running this special event. Thanks also to all of our stall holders and all of the families who came along  to support this event. We managed to raise over £600 to help us buy new equipment for our playgrounds!
