AN ICE RINK is returning to Scalby School’s Christmas fair on Saturday, after several years’ absence.

Other attractions will include a 30ft climbing wall, birds of prey, a Father Christmas grotto, a display by local sea cadets, the Salvation Army band, a zumba session and about 30 stalls selling Christmas fare.

Headteacher David Read said the fair is aimed at the local community and that profits from school stalls, plus the £2 admission charge, would go to the Salvation Army.

Other stalls will be run by local businesses and charities. A company called Tulip has donated sausages, bacon and cold meats to be served to visitors, along with a Christmas hamper to raffle.

Assistant head teacher Vicki Michael said many small local businesses had bought advertising space in the programme and given raffle prizes including vouchers, meals, Armani sunglasses, seasonal food and a £250 photoshoot from Infocus.

“We are also raffling signed photos by rap artist Chipmunk, who visited the school earlier in the term.”

The fair will be open from 10am to 4pm.
