Christmas thanks from the PTA……… On behalf of the PTA committee we would like to thank everyone for all the support shown at the Christmas Extravaganza. Without the support of parents helping out on the day it would not be possible to run such events. In partic- ular, we would like say thanks to the fantastic face painters, the refreshments ladies and those who helped run the raffle, tom bo- la, Secret Santa and the reflexologist. Also, a big thank you to Mrs Bakewell for manning the entrance all day. We would also l ike to say thank you to Santa for paying us a visit and to his two elves who stepped in at the last minute.
