Tried and tested...
Jane Rees, chair, Pontlliw Primary School PTA, shares her experiences of using Booker at their Christmas fair: 'At our Christmas fair, for the children we provide hot dogs - our deputy head is a whizz on the BBQ so he has the job of cooking sausages all day! For the adults we have a hog roast (always a sell out). We buy a lot from Booker, including sausages, paper plates, napkins, cutlery, ketchup, sweet bags (paper variety for the cakes) bread rolls, paper cups, plastic wine glasses, polystyrene cups (for mulled wine) soft drinks, selection boxes (for visits to Santa). We also purchase all our sweets at Booker. They have such a wide variety of sweets to cater for all tastes plus they have sweets for every occasion. Spooky faces for Halloween etc. Our PTA doesn't have a credit card so I use my own personal card to buy it and the invoice is then submitted to our treasurer for reimbursement.'
