Quiz Night, 3rd February 2018

Christmas Market @ SCD - 3rd December 2017
This year's 2017 Christmas Market held on Sunday 3rd December was, as hoped, a resounding success. It was a cold day as expected, but the weather stayed dry and our stall holders arrived early and in good spirits to set up their beautifully laid out tables of goodies and gifts to buy. Our committee members and volunteers were extremely busy with finishing touches to make the Barbirolli Hall look festive and welcoming. The cafe, BBQ and Creperie, with their scents of hot food, sweet pancakes and mulled wine, further enticed our 700 visitors inside. Thank you to the junior choir who sang beautifully on the front steps to really put everyone in the festive spirit.
The SCD PA are thrilled to announce that thanks to everyone's support, donations and time given by our 20+ volunteers, the Christmas Market this year raised an astonishing £6,700.
The donation of superb raffle prizes meant that we sold over 2,300 raffle tickets. CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs Ann Nelmes, the winner of the iPhone X, who received the prize at our last meeting of the year, presented by Mr Garvey, Assistant Headteacher.
A note to all our volunteers who covered tombolas, admissions, games & raffle, cafe, 2nd hand uniform and car parking (high five to Mr Sutherland, our new Headteacher from January, who took a long stint on car parking along with our long standing car parking guru Richard Sandring) - we hope you can all understand the depth of our appreciation.
Special thanks to all our donors this year. Without businesses and individuals supporting us through every event year on year, we wouldn't be such a success:
The End Clothing Store in Watford
Van Hage Nursery
Andrew Fleming Florist
The Boot in Sarratt
Polly’s Beauty Voucher, Polly Ford
and thanks to Lorraine Connelly, Year 7 parent who sourced our 2nd and 3rd raffle prizes.
We end this year on a high and if you have been involved with us at any of our events and wish to find out more about joining the Parents' Association, please get in touch - we are a great and welcoming committee. Until then, from us all we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and prosperous new year.
