Excitement is building for the CHRISTMAS FAIR which is only TEN DAYS AWAY!

At the moment our Tree of Surprises is only a NURSERY.  Please, please help to make it a FOREST by donating some suitable prizes.  The Tree is one of our biggest attractions, but we really need the following to make it a success:
bottles of alcohol, toiletries, new books, festive foodstuffs, vouchers for popular stalls etc.  so please bring your suitable prizes into the Porter’s Lodge or let your reps know.
You can now ORDER A BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS WREATH made by Latymer parents and delivered to your door.  Look at the website for a choice of designs at www.latymerupperchristmasfair.wordpress.com
The following stalls need donations so keep them coming in!
Tombola prizes, Second hand teenage clothes & accessories, books & DVDs and sporting goods.
Year 8 Lucky Dip at the Christmas Fair. We are looking for small prizes for the Lucky Dip, as well as Christmas decorations to hang up in our stall. There will be 2 lucky dips. One is a “Gruesome UnLucky Dip” for older kids. Please drop off any donations at the Porter’s Lodge to the attention of Jackie Ching, 8H. If you have any questions, email jaqc@aol.com.
Do come along to the Christmas Fair – 22 November 11am – 3pm as there are lots of students taking stalls, great food to eat, fun activities to do, lots of shopping potential and above all, it’s a fun and sociable occasion and it all supports the Horizon Fund.

Welcome to the Latymer Christmas Fair 2014!

The Parents’ Gild will be holding their annual Christmas Fair on Saturday November 22nd from 11.00-3.00pm.  It’s a great social and festive occasion when the Main Hall and the piazza is transformed into a Christmas market with over forty different stalls selling everything from Christmas gifts for the family to festive foods.

We will have stalls run by parents, students and external stallholders.  These range from stalls selling cakes and Christmas decorations to make up and jewellery. The Parents’ Gild stalls include the ever popular Tombola, Tree of Surprises and the Lucky Dip.  We will also be running a fantastic Christmas Raffle with wonderful prizes in such as an iPhone 6, dinner for 6 in a top restaurant and £250 in Liberty vouchers.

Do arrive hungry as the Sixth Form Common Room is going to be transformed into a welcoming café with sweet and savoury refreshments and our BBQ’s will be fired up and warming soup and mulled wine will keep the chill away.  Delicious pancakes and waffles, all cooked to order, will be available in the piazza and, if that isn’t enough, you could also have a tasty smoked salmon sandwich washed down with a glass of cold prosecco.

For the first year we are running a teenage treats stall to complement our “Teenage closet” second hand stall so come and find a bargain outfit for Christmas. If you’re sporty come along to the Second hand sporting goods stall and if you’re a bookworm check out the Second hand books and DVDs.

Please help promote the Fair by sending this link to your friends.

All the proceeds from the Christmas Fair benefit the Horizon Fund which provides grants to current Latymer students who, for financial reasons, would not otherwise have the opportunity to take part in educational and curriculum-based trips or events.
