School's Christmas fair raises funds for new play equipment

The countdown to Christmas continued as a school in Burnham held its annual Christmas fair.

St Peter's Primary School, in Minniecroft Road, laid on a host of activities for fairgoers with youngsters given the chance to meet Father Christmas in his grotto.

Each class at the school had its own stall where pupils sold their handmade gifts.

Traditional fair games including a lucky dip and spin the wheel also gave people a chance to try their luck.

One of the fair’s main attractions once again proved to be the raffle and silent auction which featured some sought after prizes donated from businesses in the community.

Sara Dennis, chairman of the St Peters Primary School PTA, said: “The local community are always really great at both our summer and Christmas fairs.

“Without their prize donations and support we wouldn’t have the same success.”

More than £3700 was raised at the event. The money will help the PTA fund new play equipment for the school.

Sara added: “Everything we do as a PTA raises money for the school.

“Over the summer we had to take down some of the play equipment so this will go towards replacing that.”
