ROBSACK Wood Primary School celebrated everything yuletide last Friday afternoon at its annual Festive Fayre.

Hosted by the Friends of Robsack, the event raked in over £750 with all proceeds going back into the school. The money will be spent on its outdoor learning area which acts as an alternative space for the kids, separate from the usual classroom.

Cake stalls sold culinary creations and Santa’s grotto delighted the children. Prizes were given out as part of a raffle including a £50 restaurant voucher given by Pomegranate in the Old Town, two £50 cash prizes that a parent had generously donated and a bracelet from jewellers Moons.

The Tree of Promises was another highlight as a new addition to this year’s celebration which had activities given by local businesses up for grabs at £5 each.

Numbered envelopes hung off a Christmas tree and contained gifts such as a 3-course meal for two at the Sedlescombe Golf Course, a free test at Just MOTs and family tickets for Smugglers Adventure.

Lucie Mason, Friends of Robsack secretary, said: “The kids loved it and the feedback was really positive. A big thank you to all the local businesses that supported us with their donations. We had meals, vouchers for shops and takeaways and some great items given for the raffle.”

The profits will also be spent on the upkeep of the school’s own chickens and ducks with a view to add more animals in the future.
