    Christmas Fair and Outdoor Market

    Christmas Fair

    Everyone is welcome (CGS families and members of the community) at our Outdoor Christmas Market & Craft Fair on Saturday 4th December 1-5pm.  

    We have over 25 local craft stalls, will be serving mulled wine and mince pies and selling our legendary hampers! There will also be cakes, games and much more! Do come and support Chesham Grammar School! We are fundraising to raise money to update the art and technology rooms and create a centralised wellbeing hub.

    We will be collecting items for our much-loved Christmas Hampers which we sell on Fair Day from (Mon 22 – Tues 30 Nov inclusive 8 – 8:40am) and ask that you either drop off donations to the school reception or ask your child to take donations to the school foyer outside the main school office, where there will be labelled crates for them to leave the items in.

    We’re looking for the following items:

    • Chocolates & Sweets – all kinds, but please make sure items are within their use/sell by date
    • Toiletries
    • Unwanted, unopened Gifts & Games
    • Wine/alcohol (Parents leave with Reception / Pupils to hand directly to School Office please)
    • Christmas Wrapping Paper and boxes
    • Christmas Decorations
    • Luxury unopened food – Please make sure items are within their use/sell by date
    • Exciting Raffle Prizes
    • Pledges for a Pupil’s Silent Auction (e.g. Offer of work experience, music tickets, suitable gift vouchers etc).

    If you would prefer to make a cash donation so we can buy items on your behalf, please contribute via our PayPal account.
