PTA Christmas Fair Full Of Festive Cheer
On Sunday 1 December, Princethorpe’s popular PTA Christmas Fair returned marking the start of the festive season at the College.
With the College resplendent with decorations, hundreds of visitors descended on a feast of stalls, games, activities, refreshments, decorations, music and all-round Christmas cheer. With well over 50 stalls selling a range of artisan products and gifts, it was the perfect occasion for the organised Christmas shopper. In addition, there was an array of seasonal activities for all ages to partake in, including the ever-popular bottle tombola and chocolate tombola stalls and a Christmas craft room, where visitors could make their own Christmas table decorations. Father Christmas and his elves made their usual stop off at the Fair, delighting children of all ages with gifts, and finding out what was at the top of their Christmas lists.
The crowds also enjoyed musical entertainment from the wonderful Bilton Silver Band, who spread cheer with a range of festive melodies to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. In the Sixth Form Dining Room, families gathered to enjoy warming hot drinks and delicious mince pies, as the winners of the Christmas Raffle were announced.
Our huge thanks go out to the many helpers, supporters and workers who make the event such a success every single year. It is one of the PTA’s main fundraising events and they are delighted to report that this year the fair and Christmas raffle have raised a superb £4,477.83.
Planning for the PTA’s next event, the Summer Fete on Sunday 21 June will begin in the New Year – so if you fancy joining the PTA band of helpers email the PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A very merry Christmas to you all!
