THE VERY first Christ­mas fair of a new pri­mary school in Win­nersh raised an in­cred­i­ble £2,000 for the school.

Wheat­fields Pri­mary School, which is based in Wood­ward Close, held their in­au­gu­ral Christ­mas fayre on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 1 for chil­dren and par­ents from the school.

Par­ents and grand­par­ents cre­ated hand­made crafts and gifts which were avail­able to buy, and chil­dren could dec­o­rate their own Christ­mas bis­cuits be­fore meet­ing Fa­ther Christ­mas him­self in his very own grotto.

Chil­dren could also buy a spe­cial present for their par­ents from ‘El­fridges’, which was spon­sored by lo­cal firm All Brick and Stone.

PTA member Emma Whi­taker, who helped to or­gan­ise the event said: “Af­ter a huge amount of plan­ning and prepa­ra­tion by the par­ents of the school I am so im­pressed to have raised £2,000 and it makes all the sweat and tears worth it.

“We re­ally have got a fan­tas­tic set of par­ents who go above and be­yond for the school, and I would like to per­son­ally thank them all.”
