to expect the girl guiding xmas fair to comprise of more than just a handful of 'party-plan' type offerings?

And nothing whatsoever for the rainbows, brownies and guides who have dragged their parents along? DD spent her money on an over-priced, over-iced cupcake sad

Well if you didn't like what they offered perhaps you should volunteer to co-ordinate it next year.

If every parent gave just a few hours of their time these sorts of events could be fab. All too often it falls upon the shoulders of a few who then take the flak from those who do nothing but complain.

LOL at onceamai and I agree.

Am guessing we're both involved in organising christmas fayres smile

Theres lots of things that can be done but it does need parents to volunteer to donate/contribute and man the stalls.

I totally agree, and get involved in plenty of other fundraisers for school, scouts and church.
This was the first year DD has been a rainbow, so I had no idea what the event would be like. She was disappointed so I am sad for her.
I don't recall parents being asked to contribute btw, otherwise I would've offered.
