Christmas Jumper Swap Shop
Fed up of forking out for Christmas jumpers to wear once a year and paying more for the privileged of wearing them?  Or are you looking to recycle more and waste less this Christmas? Then the PTA Christmas Jumper Swap Shop is for you! 

Bring in Christmassy jumpers that your family have outgrown or got tired of and find a new one at the Swap Shop which will be at Fun Friday on 29th November (and at school gate on Wednesday the week after if we have enough left) - plenty of time to get kitted up for Save the Children's Xmas jumper day on 13th December.  A fresh jumper will be £4, or £3 if you donate one for us to sell.  Please drop off donations in advance - collection starts on Monday and there will be a list to record that you've donated and are due a discount.  Adult, preschool and big kid jumpers all welcome, as are other Christmassy clothes.
