Father Christmas visits St George’s Christmas Fair

Father Christmas St George's

On Friday 1 December, St George’s Childcare hosted our annual Christmas Fair which raised £1743. It means we’re one step closer to building a new mud kitchen play area. Mayor Julia Soyke was there to support the festivities, which took place in the garden of the nursery from 3 – 6pm.

St George’s parents, children and staff got together with the local community to get into the Christmas spirit.  It was a chilly afternoon, but everyone warmed up with the help of mulled wine, mince pies and a singalong with local band The Foghorns. The children visited Father Christmas in his grotto which was decorated with the help of students from Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammar. The winners of the Christmas raffle were announced, which had prizes from No 6 beauty salon, Go Ape and St John’s Yard.

As a registered charity, we fundraise for new toys and equipment, and the money raised from the Christmas raffle will go towards building a new messy mud play area for the children.

Fundraising Manager Ellie Stewart said: “We’re delighted to have raised this amount to support our nursery. It means we can make our garden an even better place for our children to play and learn.

“We’re especially grateful to all the volunteers who gave up their time to make the Christmas Fair possible. We couldn’t have done it without them!”
