Day after the May Fair

Feeling drained today after the first May fair in 3 years! I had foolishly forgotten how much work it is. 8am-4pm setting up on Saturday and then 7-6pm Sunday (also missed the football) feet are sore after 40000 steps yesterday mostly carrying stuff around as well!
It's a great fundraiser for the school but I'm certainly glad it's only once a year [Sleepy.png]

Re: Day after the May Fair

yeah we did ours on Saturday too- again 1st one in 3 years... feel like I didn't get a weekend... 8:30 till 5

and wouldn't claim OT for it either. it was purely voluntary on my part, I wasn't expected to stay for the whole event but i did

It's what a lot of us did on any occasion like this you came in and did it without occurring overtime as it was the right thing to do help the school succeed. [Success.png]

Re: Day after the May Fair

We did ours the other week, was a bit surreal after not having events like that since basically 2019. Don't get paid extra, part of the job, but the PTA here are very grateful (and generous! [Like.png] ) Also started having to set up hundreds of chairs for parents to attend school productions for the first time in years. Glad to be getting back to normal to be honest.

Re: Day after the May Fair

No May fair here, the summer fete will be an internal one done during a school day rather than a big Saturday event, to make up for this we have a funfair coming onto the field for a weekend, not sure I'm too happy about them pitching up and staying on the field all weekend but as I've been told, I have no say in the matter, to which I replied they better not knock on my door as they really won't like the response they will get.
