At Boxgrove we want every child to:
We hope you enjoyed the Summer Fair. What a fantastic turnout we had and the weather
couldn’t have been better.
Thank you to everyone who helped before and on the day. Without your help the day
would not have been the success it was.
Special thanks must go to the Summer Fair Team who have spent
months organising this event: Zoe, Sam, Lisa, Wendy, Katie, Tracey & Katie.
WOW, thank you one and all.
"Thanks to everyone involved in organising such a great afternoon with perfect weather!"
"It was brilliant! Ran like a well oiled machine as always - great work BPTA. Hope you are relaxing with a large glass of something now."
"You all did a fabulous job and much fun was had by all. Sterling work by those manning stalls particularly when the weather was a bit against them. It was great fun seeing and meeting everyone who came to our stall for the hour I was there. Wish my real job was always as pleasurable as that!"

Do you have any unwanted Christmas presents?

Don't forget to "like" our Facebook page for Boxgrove PTA updates.
Last year's Summer Fair raised a fantastic £10,700.00p!
How has it been spent?
The majority of the money raised this year will go towards providing the school with a pavilion. This will be used as an outdoor classroom which will benefit the whole school. It will also be the used by the school and the Boxgrove PTA at events, such as sports days and fairs.
Other money donated by the Boxgrove PTA funded a sound system with head mics, the library refurbishment, focus weeks including an anti bullying week, Christmas crackers for the children's school Christmas dinner, reading books for KS2 and a donation to each class for equipment and resources.
If you would like to help with the organisation and/or ticket sales for this event, it would be much appreciated. It's easy to get in touch with us, just fill out the form below.
