PTA Christmas Fair Full Of Festive Cheer
Tis most definitely the season to be jolly at Princethorpe, with the popular PTA Christmas Fair on Sunday 2 December marking the first of many Christmas celebrations at the College.
Hundreds of visitors joined us for a festive feast of stalls, mulled wine, decorations, music and all round Christmas cheer. With over 50 stalls selling a range of artisan products and gifts, it was the perfect occasion for the organised Christmas shopper. There was an array of festive activities for all ages to partake in, including the ever popular bottle tombola, ‘water to wine’ stall and a Christmas craft room, giving guests the opportunity to 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.
As more visitors arrived, the Beer and Bratwurst and Mulled Wine stalls did a roaring trade. 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 fair 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 record amount of over £5,300.
Planning for the next Christmas Fair will be underway in the New Year – if you fancy joining the merry band of PTA elves keep an eye out on the Flagpole for details or email the PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A very merry Christmas to you all!
