Someone asked today if this was Mr Jones. How disrespectful!

people signed up to help on the day and there

is lots of activity behind the scenes to ensure we are ready to give everyone a day to remember – under a blue summer sky we hope.

To ensure we have as many people as possible there to enjoy what we have on offer, can you help by downloading a poster (or two, or three) and displaying it in your window?

Here are the posters. There are three to choose from. Hope you like them. It’s our very own Guy Parker Rees who did the pictures as he did before for theAdvent Fair.

Just click on the links of the posters – choose the ones you like and away you go.

Due to a technical hitch which also involves me being out of action tonight serving tea for the new Balfour parents (so can’t fix it right now), the other posters aren’t here and this is not a clickable link. If you past the above into your browser, you should find a downloadable copy of one of the posters. If it doesn’t work or if you want a different one, check back here tomorrow PM when I should have got it fixed. Apologies. If you are desperate for a colour poster (and why wouldn’t you be?) email me on and I will send you them on.


Les Posters est arrive!

Excuse the lack of an accent on the school-girl french above. Don’t know how to put one in when in blog land.

However, yes, the posters with Guy Parker-Rees’ lovely pictures are here and ready for display around our environs.

Front windows would be lovely places to put them up. But if you are feeling coy, print one and put it somewhere else to remind you to come along on the day.


All you have to do is open up the document (PDF) choose a poster and print that page only. Unless you want all four! (Ignore page 5 – that’s for something else entirely and was scanned into the document in error!)

What a bunch of posters


On emptying the contents of his drawer at the end of term, one Balfour student's family was forced to abandon their home due to amount of letters he eventually brought back. An environmental health officer said: 'Gosh.'

With a bit of luck your child just may perhaps have brought home a poster for you to stick in your window about the Advent Fair. Great for colouring in and if you don’t fancy putting it on public display, it will adorn your fridge, noticeboard, fruit bowl (or wherever this stuff gets put) and remind you to come along with your spending money on the 29th.

Also on the little message attached was the promise to have colour ones to download at your end should the fancy take you. These will be on here as soon as possible so please check back before the end of the week (why not visit everyday?!). There are four lovely designs based around Guy Parker-Rees’ six cheeky Advent Fair characters. There’s a monkey, a pig, two animal tree decorations – a mouse and a penguin – plus another penguin with a snow penguin friend.

And me, I’ve got myself a banner for the fence but was too pathetic to struggle to put it up today. If you should see a woman wearing 6ft of wet white vinyl lying on the pavement outside the school tomorrow however having been knocked sideways by a sudden blast of wind, please help pick me up.
