Your PC Team.
The Pencaitland Playgroup’s annual summer fair takes place tomorrow (Saturday 25th) at the Carriage House, between 1 and 4pm.
There will be food (burgers, ice-cream, teas and coffees and home baking), plenty of stalls (second-hand books and toys, bric-a-brac, bags, jewellery, make-up), face painting, arts and crafts, tombola and a number of competitions where you can win, amongst other things, tickets to East Links, the Air Show at East Fortune.
ABOUT PENCAITLAND PLAYGROUP
Open since 1968, the playgroup has a long tradition of working with the children of Pencaitland and the surrounding area. It offers a safe and happy environment for children to work and play in, with two full-time staff members providing a morning service based in the Sports Pavillion next to the bowling club. Activities offered include sand and water play, art and craft activities, baking, books and music and movement.
If you were one of the many parents in attendance at this year’s Pencaitland Youth Football Club tournament you may enjoy the pictures below.
Everyone at the PYFC had a great time and wanted to pass on their thanks to all those who helped out and gave donations for the fundraising and tombola.
This coming Saturday is the PYFC’s final game of the season before breaking for the summer and resuming when school restarts after the break.
There are plans to also run a kids and parents session this weekend so everyone can see just how difficult it is to hit those little goals. Please come suitably dressed if you want to join in. Shin pads if you have them are recommended – getting caught up in the middle of the swarm can be pretty painful without them.
The annual PTA Summer Fayre will take place on
Saturday 28th May 2011, from 1-4pm.

- Used (not broken) toys
- Books (all ages)
- CD’s and DVD’s
- Children’s bikes, adult bikes, trikes and scooters (there will be a bike stall)
- Home baking (bring on the day)

Please drop off any donations at the school office.
If you can’t manage to bring donations to the school, please contact Graham Wilson 01875 341 021 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will arrange pick-up.
HELPERS – Please fill in a helper form at the school reception or contact one of the PTA if you can help at the Fayre. You can help for half of the event or the full event.
Thank you in advance for your support,
