Another winter term is coming to a close and what a busy bunch you’ve been! We’re loving the photos you’ve been sharing on social media about your best Christmas Fair ideas, and have picked some festive crackers to feature on this week’s blog. [Originally published in December 2015]

Best Christmas Fair photos - Santa's Grotto

We love this colourful grotto created by The Croft Primary School PTA:

And some beautiful props can make all the difference to create a gorgeous grotto, as demonstrated here by Friends of St Mary’s School Yate.
