A huge thank you to all of you who came to support our Christmas Fair last Friday evening. It was so busy and it was great seeing our children pulling their families around each of the stalls. I'm sure you will agree that despite being cramped because of our current building works, the Friends of Great Binfields managed to pop on a fabulous event for us all to enjoy. I really enjoyed the opening - our choir sang beautifully around our lovely Christmas tree. Thank you to Balfour Beatty, our contractors for donating this by the way, it was really nice of them to do so. There were so many lovely things to buy at the fair; some great new games to play; the raffle prizes were amazing and our newly adapted Santa experience really worked well too.
I have sent our FOGB members all thank you letters for their efforts but I would like to publically thank them for their continued support. It is not an easy task putting on an event that is so big in our yearly calendar. There is lots of prior planning, organising, advertising, canvassing, purchasing, persuading and last minute logistically problems to solve too. You have all done a grand job and we appreciate the fact that you all go above and beyond for our children.
We raised a phenomenal sum, exceeding last years' total... we still have a few expenses to clear but it will be around £2000 which is superb. I will let you know the final total when I find out.
