Our fair is fast approaching so we are down to the final weeks of preparation. The fair is a great success because of the wonderful donations from family, friends and businesses who support Appleby School.

Firstly, could we please ask for chocolate donations for the chocolate wheel.

Also any other generic donations like small kitchen goods (eg tea towels) or small gifts for kids are also welcome. There is a box in the office for these donations.

Secondly, we are looking for donations for fairground prizes. These could simply be low value, branded items like hats, drink bottles, bags etc. If you own a business or know someone who does, we would greatly appreciate any contributions.

Thirdly we are looking for volunteers on fair day. If you are happy to deal with the public and handle money then we would love to hear from you!! There is a list up outside the library. To find out what spots we still need help with look for the yellow highlighted sections. (trash and treasure is definitely looking for helpers!) Please contact Dorren (021 137 6453) if you are keen to help out on the day.

Don't forget to start thinking about your cafe cake/fudge/truffle recipes for our competition. Entries will be judged the day before the fair. Please have them at school by Friday 9am.

We are still taking donations for second hand goods. So now is the time for a spring clean! The container is open from 2.30 pm every day. If you are unable to open it, find Graham.

Lucky bags and fair posters will be sent home tomorrow. Please fill the bags and return to the office unsealed. We will have some samples of the lucky bags in the office for you to view if you need some inspiration! Please remember to keep lollies and sweets to a minimum. Please put the poster in your cars rear side window to spread the word that our fair is just around the corner.

If you have a management position at the fair PLEASE could you get the names of any businesses that are sponsoring/donating items in your area to Laura (silent auction) & Sarah (rural flyer) asap.
