On the first Friday of half term, the McMullen Hall, Dining Room, Front Hall and Long Room were transformed into a wonderful Aladdin’s Cave of goodies to be sold for the annual Elstree Gift Fair. The excitement had been building the previous week with the stunning hampers (created by our fantastic Friends of Elstree Committee) on display in the front hall, and plenty of bidding taking place.
On Friday there was a huge variety of stalls selling their goods and the Year 6 boys, working towards the charity section of their Bronze Elstree Award, ensured that all visitors and guests were well looked after. The Pop Up Café on the stage in the McMullen Hall was a welcome new initiative too.
This year we were delighted to support Team Archie www.teamarchie.org/ which aims to inspire and motivate young people. A huge thank you to everyone who supported the Gift Fair this year, and also to all of you who baked such delicious cakes for the cake stall!
