The School Hall was busy with visitors on Saturday 10th Dec at the Christmas Fayre. The children thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon as did many of their parents, grandparents and friends who made the most of the bacon rolls and mulled wine on offer. The occasion had a great atmosphere and everyone had an opportunity to chat which they often don't get when dropping off or picking up children at the school gates. During his visit, Father Christmas picked all the winning tickets for the raffle - Rachel Kearney won the Christmas Cake; Joyce Barnett won the Booze Hamper and Charles Andrews won the Christmas Hamper.

The money raised meant that funds for the school’s sports equipment was topped up to £1,000. Many thanks to all who supported the event.

A host of golden daffodils!
Following their fundraising events in 2011, the Fersfield Friends have donated and planted 250 daffodils in the churchyard for us all to enjoy next spring - something for everyone to look forward to!
 

Starlight Sunday - we had a great evening! A GREAT EVENING!

It was cold, but what a great evening we all had at last Sunday's Fersfield Four gathering. Over 40 folk came along to enjoy mulled wine, delicious chicken and vegetable soup, sausage and onion hotdogs and luscious cakes. The Christmas music put us all in the spirit of things and the log fire kept us warm whilst we chatted, tried our luck on the bottle stall and lucky dip and waited for Father Christmas to visit. Jingling bells announced the arrival of our special guest and the children were delighted when he gave them all sweets and wished them a Merry Christmas.

£100 was raised for Children in Need and we would like to thank all those who came for their support.
