Watch this space for the return of many of the much-loved events in 2021/22

2021/22 – EVENTS & FUNDRAISERS

We’re really hoping we will be able to resume as many of the much loved events as possible this year.   The kids love them so much and they provide much needed fundraising to help support our extra-special school community.  We will be planning events term by term in case of more surprises so do keep checking back and in the weekly updates for the latest plans.
See also Activities for Parents & Families for a lovely handful of  informal Yerbury Community activities such as choir, football and (maybe) camping!

A Call for Volunteers!

We are enormously grateful to all of the work and incredible expertise that Victoria Lemmon and Holly Hughes have put in to running the PTA Events Team over the last two years. We are now looking for new volunteers to step into their shoes and help with organising the wonderful events that we are so accustomed to. If you are interested in helping out then please do contact the PTA – yerburypta@gmail.com – we would love to hear from you.

SPRING

Yerbury Postcard Exhibition Entries/ Monday 01 March 2021

A lovely art project where the children design their own postcards themed on: something to do with ‘The Future’.  Entries will be displayed in an art exhibition at the school and there will be a printed format for everyone to collect as a memory.

 

SUMMER

Summer International Fair/ Saturday 3 July 2021
1230-1430, Yerbury School

As we’re sure you’ve heard, restrictions are not lifting on 21 June so we have had to change a few plans for the summer fair. The show will go on though so please do still come along and support the school! 🙂

The fair will be more like a market, with a greater focus around the international food (so please do sign up to bring food if you can (https://sites.google.com/view/yerburysummerfair2021/home/international-food-fair?authuser=0) with some other stalls, similar to the usual Saturday Farmers’ Market. In addition the fair will see the unveiling of the amazing Yerbury print fair – a series of limited edition risograph prints.

Alongside the international food and the print fair, stalls/activities that will still go ahead are the bar, other food stalls (BBQ, candy floss etc), raffle ticket sales, craft kits sales, book stall, plant stall and class photo sales. All set to the soundtrack of some amazing international-themed music!

Sadly, we will not be able to go ahead with any events/activities that encourage gathering or close contact, therefore:

– Yerbury’s Got Talent will now take place on Zoom (as it did at Christmas). More details will follow.
– The raffle draw will take place on Zoom. Tickets will be available to puchase at the fair and online.
– The pop-up cinema will be postponed to when larger groups are allowed to congregate indoors so we can do it properly!
– Live crafts will no longer take place at the fair but kits will be available to purchase and a video ‘how to’ demo will be made available on the demo so kids can create their crafts in their own time.
– Unfortunately the tombola, games, bouncy slide and face painting won’t be able to go ahead.

We are no longer looking for donations for the tombola, but book donations are very welcome. Please bring them along on the day.

The fair website will be kept up to date with the latest info so please keep an eye:

As ever, thank for your understanding and support.
