Bosham School Association Update – May Fair date for you!


We’ve set a date for the Bosham Primary School May Fair – please put Sunday 21st May from 12.00 – 2.30pm at Bosham recreation ground in your diaries! We are looking forward to a sunny, fun-filled day, with two bouncy castles, alpacas, an exciting raffle with fabulous prizes, the ever-popular Pimms bar, a sizzlingly tasty BBQ, plants, Crafty Corner, the terrific tombola, a fire engine, police car, vintage cars, coconut shy and yummy, scrummy cakes. The children will also be working hard on their stalls, as well as entertaining us musically – come along to find out more on that! We are working on lots more ideas – it’s going to be a fantastic event!

Please do come along on the day and join in the fun, and you’ll also be helping us raise much needed funds for Bosham Primary School.  Over the last few years, we’ve been able to fund some amazing events and equipment that otherwise would not have been possible, including: free music lessons for all Year 4 children, books for the library, the Trim Trail playground equipment, subsidized school trips, stage lighting for the hall, and 15 x iPad minis.

We’ve also been fundraising for other good causes – on the last day of the winter term, we supported Save the Children with a Christmas jumper/hat/item day. We were able to donate £131 to this important charity and the children looked very festive in their jumpers, hats and antlers!

We are always extremely thankful for volunteers to help at our events or for any donations that we can use as raffle prizes. We’d also like to hear from anyone who would like to advertise in our May Fair programme, or who would like to have a stall on the day. Please contact Diana O’Brien or Gwen Bennett at or, or get in touch via the school office on 01243 572375 or
