We’re all getting ready for the Christmas Fayre on Saturday. We can’t promise any snow to put you in the mood for Christmas shopping, but are hoping for dry weather.
The girls have been making Christmas wreaths, table decorations and Christmas containers which can be pre-ordered for Christmas.
I’ve been told Santa has been spotted scoffing bacon rolls to keep his energy up for Saturday.
We’re looking forward to seeing you.

The students, who have learning difficulties, have been taking part in the RCHS Individual Achievement Award. Over the past two years they have come along to Suntrap Garden one day per week. During this time they have practiced a number of horticultural processes such as propogation, seed sowing, composting, mulching, planting containers, hoeing, weeding, pressing flowers, making cards, growing and harvesting vegetables and making soup from the produce, maintaining hard surfaces and wooden structures and lots more.
It has been a very enjoyable time for them and yesterday 30 students came along to the College and were presented with their certificates by George Anderson MBE, 14 of them gained completion certificates.
It was great to see them so chuffed and a big thank you has to go to everyone at Suntrap, RCHS (The Caley Society), Oatridge College and Sodexho who helped to make the day such a huge success.
