On Saturday 11th November Chipping Campden School decked the school halls and hosted its annual Christmas fayre much to the delight of teachers, parents and students alike. With more than thirty stalls the school was jam-packed with festive spirit as well as gorgeous gifts and crafts for sale. The fayre ran from 12pm to 3pm and was without a dull moment with afternoon tea for the adults and even a special appearance from Father Christmas himself to ensure everything was running smoothly.
“Christmas music was playing the whole time and I’m really festive so I loved that.” Said Gemma Clark, a sixth form student at Chipping Campden School, who made £84 by selling gorgeous hand-made cards and decorated frames. “It was very busy but also kind of magical.” Another Sixth form student, Daniel Scott, said “It was really fun to attend and give back to the school. I’ll definitely be going again next year.”
The event was run by the Chipping Campden School Parents Association who have nearly raised £17,000 since 2014 and the money earnt at the fayre will be used to support the school as well as local business and charities. The Parents Association have said they wish to continue running this well-loved tradition and wish to plan more merriment in the future.
