St John’s Christmas Market

Festive sparkle arrived at St John’s School in Leatherhead on Saturday 21 November, when the School held its annual Christmas market for parents, friends and the local community.

The School’s Dining Hall was crammed with stalls, selling everything from stocking fillers and decorative gifts to homemade preserves, chocolates and cakes. The sounds of Christmas carols were almost drowned out by excited chatter and the popping of corks at the champagne stall, where punters gathered round to sample the selection of fizz and place orders for a case or two.

The Christmas café was also a hit, with festive nibbles available to buy, including turkey baps with all the trimmings, and much-revered glasses of mulled wine.

A number of stalls were selling goods to raise money for the St John’s School Community Holiday and the School’s Community Service Unit, whereby St John’s pupils welcome children with a range of special needs for a week-long summer holiday, and volunteer in the local community. The Kate Sartorius Cake Design stall alone raised over £200 for the community holiday.

Headmaster at St John’s, Martin Collier, commented: “Throughout the year, St John’s holds a number of events to welcome the local community and raise much-needed funds for important causes. My sincerest of thanks go to those who put in such hard work in organising and running the market.”

The market is just the first in a packed calendar of events in the run up to Christmas for St John’s. For more information on upcoming carol services and concerts, please visit the School’s website.
