Can everyone look out for Grotto gifts (£1 price point per item max). Reach out to parents to see if anyone can help with this.

Bouncy snow-globe showing as unavailable, so AJ to check and also looking into other options.

SW to ask Helen Albon whether the Pre-Loved Stall could work with a theme eg. Party clothes?

Not pre-loved toys, as too much to sort and pass on if not sold.

Silent Auction TBC if we can get good enough prizes

CH working on the grotto decorations, AJ to arrange a time to meet to review current decorations in the cupboard.

Discussed Keg Bar and hotdogs/BBQ outside in event shelter

Music – school choir, Aisling to ask Brass Band, reach out to see if any parents are in bands?

Discussed external sellers, decided best to focus on children and fair is already very busy. Perhaps in future consider a separate event for this? Potentially reach out to school parents to see if anyone would be interested.

SS to add to Newsletter – decorations for grotto, music talent, sponsorship

Next meeting – 10th November
