NEW - Stanwell School Christmas Market

Dear parents and pupils,

With the sun shining and the bird singing, our thoughts at the PTA have turned to Christmas!

Although it’s quite a way off plans are underway for the first Stanwell School Christmas Market. It’s organised by the P.T.A. as part of the Penarth Christmas Festival and to raise funds for a much needed new school minibus.

We’d like the talented parents and pupils of the school to promote their crafts and businesses at the event. As November is a busy time of year we are asking for applications of interest now. Whether you have at-home crafts business, want to test the waters with a new artistic venture or you provide goods or services that you’d like to promote we’d love to hear from you.

Stalls will be £15 for adults and £7 for pupils with all proceeds going to the mini bus fund.

If you are interested in having a stall please could you complete and return this interest form to

Thank you

Stanwell School P.T.A.
