Thank you to everybody who attended the Christmas Fair last Friday, I am very pleased to share that we made a profit of over £2,000 from the event! 

A few highlights: 

  • The raffle made £1256 (55% of revenue), thank you again Fliss and to everyone who made donations.
  • The Bottle Tombola made £230 (similar to the pre-loved toys). Ruth and Leanne labeled up a similar amount of bottles so the average cost of taking a bottle home was just about £1. With a 20% chance of winning a bottle we intend to raise ticket prices. If the average spend was £4 per bottle we’d make another £690 for the school. 
  • The cafe made £300. We think the donations model worked well, what about you?

Have Your Say

We would love to hear your feedback about the fair. What you liked that we should do more of? What you liked least that we should do less of? And any suggestions to make next year even more enjoyable and profitable! Take a few moments to share your thoughts in this feedback form.

Christmas Window Display

The Elstead window display is now live! There are 22 displays across the village for you to explore, each with a question to test you and the family (but not that hard).
