All the fun of the fayre
James Aiton Primary School is getting ready to host it’s biggest ever fayre this Saturday.
Parent council member Carol Gerrard came up with the idea of hosting a fayre and the group felt that rather than wait until Christmas, they wanted to lift the “back to school” blues and have it in autumn instead.
With over 40 stalls, a football tournament and a wide variety of taster sessions, the Autumn Fayre is all set to become one of the biggest and best school fayres Cambuslang has seen.
Carol said: “We all felt that it is important to promote and establish James Aiton Primary within the wider community, as although it is a small school, it has a great ethos and wonderful children. What better way to showcase the school than to invite the whole community in to enjoy a great day out together.”
As well as raising vital funds for the school, it will also provide opportunities for local businesses and clubs to promote their services and involve the whole community.
T h e Ca m b u s l a n g Football Academy will be there throughout the day running skills sessions, kids’ five- a-side and also a parents’ tournament for the competitive. There will also be a bouncy castle for the little ones and a massive 30ft bouncy assault course provided by local company jump4fun.
Local charity LEAP will run a knitting session in the morning as part of their BIG KNIT fundraising initiative.
Bricks4Kids, an organisation who teach children the principles of engineering and architecture using Lego, will provide a giant bag of Lego for children to enjoy.
There will be a number of amazing free taster sessions on the day delivered by local businesses including Lynn C Duncan dance class, Bushido karate class, Reach for the Sky basketball sessions, power hooping by Fitness Fanatics and Prepare to Dance finishes the day off.
There will also be stalls, live music, a car boot sale and a raffle - with the grand prize a holiday in Tenerife.
Cheryl Ryder, member of the parent council, said: “I am amazed by the wonderful gifts sent in from grandparents, parents and local businesses; we have been blown away by their generosity. Other prizes include a Kindle, £50 hotel voucher, £ 25 Scotkart voucher, dinner for two at The John Fairweather bar, £10 from Urban Alfresco and a host of others!”
The fayre will run at the school on Morriston Drive from 10am till 2pm on Saturday (September 12).
A fayre good time James Aiton pupils advertise their school fayre
