On Wednesday 6 December, the Dining Hall was once again transformed into a Christmas shoppers dream by the CPA Christmas Fair. Beautiful handmade decorations such as bunting and baubles could delight any lover of the festive season, and a great selection of Christmas cards ensured even the most forgetful shopper would be prepared this season. There was the opportunity to get some early presents for someone special with luxury skincare on offer from Neal’s Yard, or to get prepared for the cold weather with some woolly winter accessories. The children were delighted by the presence of a sweet stall and a toy stall, selling a colourful array of knick-knacks for the youngest shoppers. Christmas music filled the hall with festive cheer, and as Santa’s grotto was tucked in the corner, the fair offered fun for every visitor. All of this could happily be rounded off with the delicious array of food and drink on offer from the catering team, who outdid themselves in their festive attire! A big thank you on behalf of the Cokethorpe Parents Association to all of those who came, and to all of our stallholders and those who have supported us this year. We wish you a very merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
