  • Christmas Bazaar

    Published 09/12/22

    I wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for coming to our Christmas Bazaar, it was a real success and we couldn’t have done it without you.  It was lovely to see the children enjoying themselves and I think you would agree that the Great Waltham Village Choir gave it that extra special Christmas feel.  We raised in the region of £1900 which is amazing!

    The bazaar couldn’t have gone ahead without all the FOGWS volunteers, when I first started at school in September they were already planning the event. They have given up lots of their time to make it happen so please join me in thanking them – we really do appreciate everything you do for the children.
