The PTFA will come in at 10am on the day to start setting everything up.
It was decided that entrance to the Fair would be 50p for a child, and £1 for an adult. This would include tea and squash. 100 numbers will be sold at £1 each, with prizes coming in the form of M&S, Smyths and supermarket vouchers.
