AUTHOR : The Dearne ALC
The Dearne ALC held its first annual Christmas Fayre with much success. Santa and his lovely elves parked up the sleigh outside the school and spent some time checking the naughty list and handing out gifts.
There was no need to be hungry at our Fayre with lots of yummy Christmas treats available including hot chocolate, mulled wine, mince pies and cakes, not to mention popcorn, candy floss and hotdogs.
It was definitely beginning to smell a lot like Christmas with all the candles and bath treats on sale and with lots of handmade gifts on offer and something for everyone from our large variety of stalls.
We had lots of people popping in to support us and it was a lovely community event enjoyed by all. We would like to offer a huge thank you to all those people who contributed to making it a fabulous festive fun event !!!
