Despite a change in weather and alternative venue the annual St Fergus School Association Christmas Fayre was the busiest yet!
Children and their families came from not just the village but all over the North-east to see the famous Santa and all the traditional fun that the Fayre promised, and they were certainly not disappointed.
There were games for all ages, face painting, tattoos, lucky dips, home bakes, raffles and the all-new helium balloon release which was hosted by no other than Santa himself.
Strong teamwork between parents and staff led to the success of this event which raised just under £1,800 for the school - an amazing total considering the small size of the urban school.
Speaking to the Buchanie, the event organisers said: “It was heart-warming to see children with their parents, grandparents and other family members getting all festive, excited, smiling and having fun - it made all the running-around for everyone worthwhile.
“The feedback we have received so far is amazing!
“The Christmas Fayre has turned into a seasonal family event which brings the whole community together.”
They added: “A massive thank you must go to all local businesses for their support and new families who have joined the community who offered their help.
“We couldn’t do this without you.”
The event venue had to be changed because St Fergus Village Hall is currently being refurbished.
