St. Wilfrid’s School Christmas Fayre

The sun shone and sales were  excellent!
Saturday 1st December turned  out to be a lovely sunny Winter’s day.  All year groups from the youngest  juniors to year 11 ran a wide variety of stalls which included many  Christmas themed stalls, a Willy Wonka Chocolate room,  Scalextric Challenge and a various of hot and cold  refreshments.
As well as pupils running their  stalls, we had a well stocked, quality jumble sale and second hand uniform  stall run by the Friends of St. Wilfrid’s.
Mr Simms sweetshop ran a mini  sweetshop in the Chocolate room, and it was good to make a connection  with a neighbouring local business.  A special visitor  was the vibrant Max Jones (a former pupil at St. Wilfrid’s School) who was  our DJ for the day and did a truly excellent job!  We were also joined  by professional photographer Paul Kallu from PK Photography who took  brilliant group photographs of families and groups of  friends.
As lunchtime approached, we enjoyed  delicious sausage rolls and filled jacket potatoes, followed by a desserts from  the cake stalls,  chocolate fountain and hot mince  pies.
The raffle was a huge success and  many of the wonderful prizes were sourced by parents from the Friends  of St. Wilfrid’s.  Thank you also to Mr Bovingdon for the signed rugby  shirts from local clubs and everyone who bought and sold tickets.
Money is still coming in, so the  final total has not been calculated yet, but early indications show a  substantial sum!
Thank you to everyone who  contritbuted to this special day!
The St. Wilfrid’s School Christmas  Fayre was a great success and, we hope, the first of many more to  come!          Mrs  Mackey.
