Ridgeway Christmas Fayre

Ridgeway Middle School – Christmas Fayre

Friday 12th December 2012 3:15pm-5pm


You are cordially invited by the Friends of Ridgeway to the Ridgeway Christmas Fayre on Friday 12th December 2014. There will be lots of great stalls and we are looking forward to welcoming you to our school.

Christmas Competition

This year we are running a competition to make a “Christmas Scene”. The scene can be made of any media; let your imagination run wild. For example, it can be sewing, cake, photos, painting and junk modelling.  In fact anything that you can think of! There are two categories years 5 & 6 and 7 & 8, each winner will receive 2 cinema tickets, 2nd is a memory stick and 3rd is a lanyard. House points will also be awarded! All work needs to be bought to school between the 8th and 10th December to be in with a shot at winning. All entries will be on display and the winners will be judged by Mr Bennett and announced at the Fayre.

Pupil Stalls

The stalls our pupils run are always a great success, please ask pupils to inform Mrs Tait if they want to run a pupil stall, or if they want to help run a stall organised by the Friends of Ridgeway.


We rely very much on the help that you as adults can supply, anyone interested in helping with a stall or setting up during the day, should contact Alison Flower on 07767274437 or mflower@blueyonder.co.uk. The more helpers we get the less everyone has to do….. Volunteers are also always welcome to come to the regular “Friends of Ridgeway” meetings, contact Alison for more details.

Look out for the letters in the next few weeks about hampers, re-homing teddies, our amazing raffle with £100 top prize and many other prizes!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
