A Fantastic Festive Week for FOBS!
Our amazing group of parent volunteers and fundraisers Friends of Bosbury School (FOBS) have worked wonders this week during what has been an extremely busy time for them in organizing two brilliant Christmas wreath-making sessions in Ledbury and of course hosting a spectacular school Christmas Fair at Bosbury Church!
The wreath-making workshops, a brand new FOBS initiative which could (wink wink) look set to become a new annual Bosbury School tradition, were held in two separate morning and evening sessions on Wednesday at The Barn House in Ledbury and were a firm hit with budding parental wreath-makers as parents and grandparents alike were delighted to be able to learn a talented new skill while also raising money for the school either through donations made to take part in the event or through making wreaths to sell at the Christmas Fair.
The big day then finally arrived as Friday saw what had to be one of the biggest and most well-attended Bosbury School Christmas Fairs of recent years as the whole Bosbury school and village community flocked to a beautifully-decorated Bosbury Church to spend their pennies on the plethora of stalls available such as tombolas, tasty Christmas cake and biscuit stalls, jam jar sales, teddy bear's birthday competitions, lovely warm refreshments including delicious turkey rolls and hot beverages laced with a little bit of something slightly stronger than your average tea or coffee, and of course, a visit to a beautiful grotto to have a quick chat with the bearded and bespectacled special guest visitor himself!
A HUGE well done to new FOBS chairperson and vice-chairperson Jo Lloyd and Laura Symonds as well as their sizeable band of merry elf helpers for all of their hard work in creating these wonderful events which are sure to have raised a huge amount of money to be spent on so many education-enhancing items and experiences for the pupils of Bosbury School.
Thank you also to Jenny Holland for kindly providing the use of The Barn House for the fabulous wreath-making workshops.
Thank you FOBS - you are all Bosbury Christmas Superstars!
