Earlier this month the Friends of Bolnore Village Primary School organised a fun filled afternoon at the school’s annual Christmas Fair. The school corridors were bustling with an array of festive activities and hundreds of happy visitors. The event united the village community with the Bolnore Village pre-school supplying hot drinks, delicious homemade cakes & biscuits and the Bolnore Scouts manning a BBQ with tasty sizzling sausages.
Those attending the event had the opportunity to do some Christmas shopping with a selection of local small independent traders selling a variety of homemade seasonal delights and also proving very popular were the wooden reindeers created by the Forest School team at Bolnore. The games stalls, chocolate tombola, secret present room and face painting were a big hit with the children too.
The main attraction was a special visit by Father Christmas who took time out of his busy schedule to open the event with traditional bell ringing before settling in his Grotto for the duration of the fair. Mrs Claus and the Elves helped Father Christmas meet lots of exited children all of whom were delighted to take home a small gift.
The Friends of Bolnore Village Primary School would like to thank the three main sponsors: Cuckfield Life (The Grotto), Mike Oliver Associates (The Secret Present Room) and Duffy & Co. and all those who volunteered their time on the day & helped make the day a huge success. Whilst the final figures are not yet known it is anticipated that a substantial amount of money has been raised.
