This afternoon the school was once again filled with the smells, sounds and atmosphere of the magic of Christmas time as we held our Christmas fair. Superbly organised by our dedicated and simply brilliant Friends of Westwood School, there was something for everyone, from hand made crafts to a feast of festive treats and even FC himself dropped by, taking time out from his busy preparations to talk to our children.
It is always lovely to see the school buzzing with excitement and I always feel proud that so many members of our community join us as we kick off the countdown to Christmas in style. My enormous thanks go to everyone involved in making this event such a tremendous success. We are so lucky to have the unwavering support of our FoWs who always give up so much of their time and energy to put on such fantastic fundraising events. Thank you everyone for such an enjoyable afternoon. Here are some photos (thanks Jo!) of the fun we had:
I cannot think of a better way to revive my posting again than by writing about the thoroughly enjoyable weekend that has just passed. On Saturday afternoon we were able to, once again, enjoy the atmosphere, excitement and festive fun of the FoWs Christmas Fair.
Superbly organised by Ann and Elaine, a very committed group of volunteers all gave their time to decorate and transform our school into a Christmas wonderland with something for everyone to enjoy. An enchanting Santa’s Grotto, tea and mince pies in our cafe and an array of stalls, activities and games kept our biggest ever attendance busy for two and a half hours. At this moment we do not know how much we raised, but the true community spirit was once again here in large abundance to make the afternoon so very special. Thank you to everyone who came and supported us and my sincere thanks to all of our Friends of Westwood school for working so hard to make the occasion so wonderful.
As I was completely in the mood for being festive, my family and I decorated our house yesterday. I don’t often share things from home, but my wife and girls did such a good job on our trees I thought I would share them!
What a fantastic achievement by everyone – over £1200 raised, which is amazing. A HUGE thank you to the many, many people who gave their time and energy to making this such a success. the atmosphere was truly delightful. Here isa reminder of the fun we had…
