An­i­mal attractions at frost fair

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

ACHRIST­MAS fair helped peo­ple get into the fes­tive spirit.

St Mary’s School, in Pack­horse Road, Ger­rards Cross, held its Frost Fair on Satur­day. Chil­dren en­joyed meet­ing Fa­ther Christ­mas in his grotto when they were not run­ning their class stalls, and their par­ents were given the chance to or­der a wreath.

A shop­ping area was cre­ated, which was given the theme of the North Pole, where a va­ri­ety of items were on sale, from cos­met­ics and jew­ellery to Christ­mas gifts and sta­tionery.

There were also re­fresh­ments avail­able in Frosty’s Food Court, where peo­ple could en­joy a turkey bap, or a mince pie with a glass of mulled wine.

The event is held each year to raise money for the school.
