Bookings and payment on the night – time slots will be allocated on arrival at the Fayre. Photographs can be taken with your own cameras/phones. Letters/wish lists can be posted to Father Christmas prior to the evening, the box will be in the school reception.

please contact the office for a booking form. Again please book early as we have limited space!

DO YOU LIVE ON A MAIN ROAD IN THE MERLEY OR WIMBORNE AREA?

A week before the Christmas and Summer Fayres we have signage go up from a local estate agent advertising our events. This year it’s going to be Hearnes Estate Agents. If you are happy for a board to go up at your property for a week please can you fill in the attached slip ( please download the letter). The more we have the better advertising for our school events.

Class Reps

Please find below the new parent reps. Their roles are to help promote the fund raising events and encourage signing up of time slots to run various stalls at the Christmas and Summer Fayres. Each slot is only 30 minutes and your children can help too. It would be great if we could all show our Class Reps lots of support.

MERLEY FIRST SCHOOL TEA TOWELS

We are in the process of organising all of the children to draw a self-portrait which we will then get printed onto some lovely tea towels.

Tea towels will retail at £5 each with all proceeds going directly into the MSA fundraising pot. They will make lovely christmas gifts for family. More information coming soon!
