Once again the time has flown by and we can’t believe there is only a week to go!

Bottle Tombola Donation Day – Friday 24th November (before school)

We will be collecting bottles in the infant & junior playground before school for the very popular Bottle Tombola. We need as many donations as possible. The bottle Tombola is one of our big sellers!

Children must not carry bottles to school. If you are unable to send bottles to school on the Friday then please drop into the school on Saturday 25th between 10am-3pm. This will give us time to ticket them and set up on the stall.

MUFTI Day – Friday 24th November

Children are invited to wear their own clothes on Friday (usual school MUFTI day rules). We ask children to bring in a £1 to support funding of the Fair and in return children will receive a £1 ticket for the Children’s Draw – 1st Prize is a £100 Amazon Voucher with lots of other great prizes such as family tickets for days out at local leisure facilities.

Grand Draw Tickets

Thank you for selling Grand Draw tickets. Ticket stubs have been coming into the office but there are still lots to come back. Please return any unsold tickets also as we have had lots of requests for more which we are currently unable to fulfil. Don’t forget to write down your child’s name and class so that we can credit their effort to the ticket sales competition. The children of the class that sells the most tickets will win a prize. So far these are the top classes:

  • 1st Butterflies
  • 2nd Ladybirds
  • 3rd Cecilia

The competition is extremely close and with a week to go any class can sneak through to the top spot.


Calling all Becket Bakers! Please bring in any yummy treats on Saturday25th or Sunday 26th. We need lots and lots! Thank you.

Volunteers Still Wanted:

We are still looking for people to help on the door and to manage the queue for the Circus Skills attraction on the day. If you would like to help out please contact Patrick White (year 2 Dad) on 07831450196.

Thank you to all the parents who have given time to support the organization of the fair. We couldn’t do it without you.

We still need lots of help, with setting up the day before, of course running the Fair on the day and packing away at the end.

The more parents that support this effort, the better. Many hands make light work.


And finally, we hope you have a fantastic family day out at the St. Thomas Becket Winter Fair 2017. Come and enjoy the fun!!
