After a year of no in-person events, we were so pleased to have our Christmas Fair back on the calendar and at a new venue too! In the lead up to the fair, we were busy getting things ready so we could all enjoy a bit of festive magic. And magical it was too……it even snowed. We’d like to take the credit for that one, but we can’t!
On Sunday 28th November we welcomed lots of people at The Rowans on Navigation Rd in Broadheath. We had an army of volunteers to help us before, on the day and afterwards. Guest performances from Wellfield Infant and Junior School Choir and the Salvation Army were just superb as always. And our resident Santa Claus excelled himself again. Let’s hope everyone gets what they want for Christmas!
There were lots of stalls selling decorations and gifts plus we were joined by other independent stallholders from outside Stockdales selling gifts, jewellery, jams and chutneys. And the fab free book shop (Global Education Trust) in Sale came along to give away free books. All of this was enjoyed with countless bratwursts, mulled wine and mince pies.
We raised £2,165 for Stockdales – our best ever fair. Special thanks to everyone who helped and supported us – either on the day or by giving donations or lending us stuff. It means so much to us.
You can see photos from the day here. Look forward to seeing you at next year’s fair!
