Santa’s Grotto at our PSFA Christmas Fayre certainly had the wow factor! Our second Christmas Fayre was an enormous success. Over thirty stall holders attended and the Parent Staff and Friends Association ran the refreshments, tombola, raffle, and Santa’s Grotto. Showtime Booths provided an opportunity for fayre goers to snap themselves with a variety of Christmas themed props, while The Woodwind of Stortford and our own Vocalise choir provided festive music. Alyson Bailey from Guide Dogs For The Blind brought along two guide dogs who were a great hit with children and adults alike. The Belgian Brewer offered gift sets of artisan Belgian style beer and also offered beer on tap. Children were able to make their own Christmas tree decorations with Mrs Jackson, ably assisted by Dr Allen. The face painting and hair braiding stalls were also big hits.
Santa’s Grotto was sponsored by Chantry Associates Ltd, Premier Contract Flooring and Décor and Belvoir! Lettings Agents. The creative skills of Mrs Augustine, Mrs Barnard & Mrs Turner transformed A2 into a magical Lapland scene. The scene was completed with the arrival of Santa and his elf helper. There was great excitement as children entered the grotto and gasps of amazement at the spectacle inside.
