Summer Fair Contributions Day – Friday 8th June


Contributions Day is Friday 8th June. In exchange for the children wearing their own clothes we would be very grateful if you could donate the following items.

  • Filled and ideally decorated jam jars for the ever popular jam jar stall. If every family could donate a jar or 2 (or more!) that would be wonderful. Fillings should be suitable for children to win (no nuts please).
  • Bottles of alcohol and soft drinks etc. for the Tombola (ideally bottles to arrive in wine carriers to make transportation and storage easier!)
  • Chocolates & Sweets, also for the Tombola (multi-packs of smaller items please, again no nuts.)
  • Bottles of Pimms.


In addition to the usual contributions for our fair we are also hoping to support some other causes.


It is a sad fact that food poverty is a problem for some local families. There are many families that rely on free school meals and of course in the long summer break these are not available. With this in mind we are collecting lunchtime foods to help to bridge this gap. All of these donations will be going to Tonbridge Baptist Church who will be distributing them to local families to help them get through the summer holidays.

Items we are collecting for the Food Bank:


Part baked bread (long life, in date for August)

Tinned potatoes


Tinned sweetcorn, peas, carrots

Cereal Bars

Jam / marmite/ sandwich spreads.

Dried / Tinned Fruit

Tins of soup

Crackers and savoury snacks

Packets of rice / instant pasta meals

Tinned pies (Fray Bentos), ham, tuna, corned beef

Tinned meals - casserole, curry

Frankfurter sausages

Mayonnaise / salad cream / ketchup

Sainsbury voucher (so we could buy some fresh fruit and vegetables).



Soft Toys

Finally, we will be collecting any unwanted clean soft toys. These will be used to help raise funds for the Tonbridge & Tunbridge Wells Community First Responder Team.

The Form Reps and HGA will be ready to collect these items from8amon the day.


NERF Games

Our star attraction at the Fair this year will be NERF Arena Combat. A specialist company will be running a series of NERF games complete with a huge range of blasters, unlimited darts, inflatable obstacles and all the necessary safety equipment. Slots will be available to book on Contributions Day and cost £5 for 30 minutes of all-out NERF mayhem so get together with your friends and sign up quick.

NERF Combat is suitable for children aged 6 and over and adults are welcome to play too (a separate NERF target shoot will be available for younger children).


Cakes Contributions Day – Friday 22nd June

Finally we would also appreciate any donations of cakes for the refreshments stall at drop off onFriday 22nd June. (All nut free please).


Thank you in advance for your generosity. As you know all the monies raised go towards the various projects that the HGA work on with the School such as the amazing new outdoor learning space for the Early Years and the resurfacing of the Trim Trail and Adventure Playground.
