Dear Parents

It’s that time of year again, and we are rapidly approaching the time for our Christmas Fair.

After the success of last year’s fair, which was held after school, we will be doing the same again this year - Thursday 7th December, 3pm – 6pm

St. Anne’s holds a Christmas fair every year, and it is one of our biggest fund raisers. The success of our Christmas fair is due to the support of all our families, both from school and the Parish and I would like to thank you in advance for your continued support.


We have many different stalls, and each year we try to add something new to keep it interesting.  For any parents not familiar with our Christmas fair, here are a few of the stalls you will see when you come along: Teddy Tombola, Bottle Tombola, Raffle, Face Painting and a Café serving tea, coffee and turkey sandwiches.


To help make our fair this year a great success we need to ask for donations from our parents and families. Any parents’ who can help with running a stall, or setting up the Christmas fair, please call into the school office with details. If any parents are able to help with donations for raffle prizes this would be very much appreciated.


Week 1 Mon 6th Nov


Week 2 Mon 13th Nov

Teddies and New Toys

Week 3 Mon 20th Nov


Week 4 Mon 27th Nov


Week 5 Mon 4th Dec










Each child will be given a raffle ticket for every item they bring in. There will be a draw held in Golden Book Assembly each Friday, and the winners will receive a bar of chocolate. There will also be a class prize.

We appreciate that this is a very busy and costly time of year for everybody, but our Christmas fair is a much needed fund raiser for school as well as being a good opportunity for families to get together.  I would encourage as many people as possible to become involved and make this another successful community event.


If your child is a member of the school choir, please could parents email a photograph of them as a baby to:



Magic Envelope

We will be launching the sale of our “Magic Envelope” at the Christmas Fair.  Put £1 into an envelope with your name and contact number, post it into the box, and the draw will be held in school during the last week of term. There will be 3 lucky winners of £100, £50, and £25.

Remember “If you’re not in it, you can’t win it!!”
