Kingsley’s Christmas Cracker fair was a seasonal showcase of stalls, sideshows and Santa – there was even real snow, which was lying on the ground on the morning of the event after an overnight flurry! Organised by the Friends of Kingsley parents’ group, it raised over £2,000.
The fair was officially opened by pupils Eloise Apparu (3) and Demos Hickling (4), dressed as Mary and Joseph and riding real donkeys, accompanied by Head teacher Ms Heather Owens.
The main hall and gym were full of festive goodies to buy or win and there were lots of activities organised by pupils who had spent many hours preparing their stalls.
The school choir and singing group performed a selection of seasonal songs, Santa’s grotto was busy all afternoon and the tasty Christmas fare on offer was enjoyed by the 500 plus people who attended the event.
“It was a very happy day, which would not have been possible without the generous support and help of many people. Everybody enjoyed themselves and got into the Christmas spirit, and the snowfall overnight made it even more festive,” says Moira Phillips of the Friends of Kingsley.
