Fabulous Christmas Fair!

Fabulous Christmas Fair!

HUNDREDS of visitors including many former pupils packed into St John’s to enjoy our recent Christmas Fair and help us celebrate its 150thanniversary.

We welcomed visitors to our annual, and always well-attended Christmas Fair, which this year featured an autism-friendly Father Christmas, among many other attractions.

The school was packed with dozens of visitors from the local area who enjoyed the wide range of festive stalls, activities and food and drink, among them many current and former students and their families.

Along with the lovely Christmas crafts and products on sale, St John’s this year took our own 150th Celebrations stall which was selling calendars, postcards and framed prints which were specially designed to showcase the history of the school.

Head teacher Ann Bradbury said: “Our Christmas Fair is always extremely popular but we think this has been our most popular yet. Literally hundreds of people came along to support our big day and to help us celebrate our 150thanniversary, which is a major milestone.

“It was a particular pleasure to see so many of our former pupils and their families again. Their, and everyone’s, support is so very much appreciated. It was also a pleasure to welcome parishioners from St Edward’s Cliffordfor a celebratory Mass in our chapel here at the school.

“We will be running celebratory events to mark our 150thanniversary throughout the year and we’re very much looking forward welcoming the local community, and our former students, back into school very soon.”

The heritage calendars, postcards and framed prints are available from St Johns – for more information email jpeacock@bostonspa.org.uk.
