FRIDAY 6TH DECEMBER 2013 6-8.30pm




It’s that time of year again when we ask for your kind and generous donations please!  As with all school and PTA run events like this we rely solely on parents, family and friends to donate items to fill our stalls.  The more donations we receive, the better the event will be for everyone (especially the children) and the more money we can raise for our school.

This year we are asking for donations of:

  • Bottles of wine for the “Wine or Water?” lucky dip stall.
  • New and unused toiletries, small candles, bath pearls, soaps, sponges etc., plus unwanted gift baskets or gift boxes in various sizes for the craft stall.
  • Any new jewellery, or old jewellery in good condition, for our jewellery stall.
  • We also love receiving surprises on the craft stall.  So if you have any hand made items that you would be happy to donate that would be fantastic too.

*All the above can be handed in at school reception for the attention of Alison Mayhew

As always we would also love you to donate generously to the nearly new toy stall – any toys, books, games and children’s DVD’s please. 

Toys etc., for the toy stall to be brought to school NO EARLIER THAN MONDAY 2nd  DECEMBER please as we do not have ANY storage space within the school prior to this date.

Adopt a Teddy Bear

After the tremendous success of this stall last year we are asking again for any new or nearly new teddy bears to be donated so that children can ‘adopt’ on the night.  Along with their chosen teddy, children will receive their very own adoption certificate.  We think this will be a huge hit again with the children, especially the infants, so please give generously if you can.

Thank you again for your support,

We are looking for exciting glass jars full of lovely treats for us to raffle on the tombola stall.   Glass jars can be any size with a lid.  Last year this was the first stall to sell out!

The following are suggestions for fillings: popcorn, sweets, jam, chutney, cookies, cotton wool, stickers, fudge, hair bands, chocolate coins, party bag toys…anything really!

Please decorate your glass jars with stickers or festive ribbon and drop them at school by Friday 29th November 2012.

We hope to make this stall a great success with your help.

Hollyberry Fayre Update

FRIDAY 6th DECEMBER 2013 6-8.30pm



The Hollyberry Fayre just would not be the same without a load of gorgeous scrummy cakes for sale.  In order to stock the stall, we will be sending out a cake box to each family and asking if you could return them laden and brimming with gorgeous things to eat.  Mince Pies are great as we sell them in the refreshments area with the tea and mulled wine etc., all other cakes go on the famous Cake Stall.

 Please return any unused cake boxes to reception.  They are costly and we can save them for another event to keep profits high!




Here’s a brief update on just some things we have planned for the fayre: 

  • The secret room -  For just £1 your child can choose and wrap a present for an adult and keep it secret until Christmas (if they don’t spill the beans) J
  • Heathlands Pocket Joke Book – don’t miss out on this hillarious gift, demand will be high!!!!!
  • The nearly new toy/book/DVD stall will be taking donations from Tuesday 3rd December – Please bring your donations to school reception in marked carrier bags.
  •  “Festive Photos” is back!  This is where the children can have their photos taken with their friends in festive attire – all will be revealed on the night!
  • The teachers will be busy selling craft that the children have lovingly made so that’s Grandma’s gift all sorted!
  • We have face painting, nail painting, festive tattoos and much more…..



Your child(ren) will have an envelope of raffle tickets coming home in their book bag.  This year we have an amazing selection of fantastic top quality prizes to be won so please return ticket stubs and money via your child(ren)’s book bag by Friday 6th December.  Additional books are available from the school office and tickets can be purchased on the evening.

Thank you again for your support, The Hollyberry Fayre Team
