Music and merriment at school Christmas fair (and Santa, of course)

HUNDREDS of people attended this year’s Christmas fair at Sonning Common Primary School on Saturday.

HUNDREDS of people attended this year’s Christmas fair at Sonning Common Primary School on Saturday.

The event, organised by the school’s parent-teacher association, included performances by the school’s recorder group and band plus Christmas carols and modern songs performed by the school choir.

Attractions included Santa’s grotto, a miniature Shetland pony belonging to villagers Lucy and Neil Ogston, table top games run by pupils, a sale of cakes donated by parents and a tombola.

The fair raised more than £3,000, which will go towards children’s workshops and improving the multi-sports area installed at the school last year. Wendy Perry, secretary for the association and whose six-year-old son Bailey is a pupil, said: “There was a great atmosphere with lots of happy faces. It’s a great event that we do every year and very Christmassy. It’s a great deal of fun for the children and their families who get involved.

“We would probably still run it even if it didn’t make much money because it’s such a great tradition at the school.”
