PTA Summer Best of British Fayre Saturday 7th July

This year's theme was a more traditional one, with lots of activity stalls like 'Beat the Goalie', 'Hook a Duck', 'Tin Can Alley', 'Balls in a Bucket' and 'The Stocks' which the children loved. A special attraction was Mr Worth in the stocks - he had around 500 sponges thrown at him, with the aim range getting closer and the water getting dirtier!

Due to the weather forecast, majority of the stalls were in the Oaks Hall, cream teas, hot pork baps, tombola, raffle, Pluck a Duck, Lollipop Game, Lucky Dips, Jubilee Jars, Henna and Face Painting and Toys/Games.

The Fayre was well attended, with everyone having a lovely time. We even had a visit from Firefighters in a Fire Engine, which was a great attraction.

Thank you for all your support, the donations, helping to run the stalls and attending on the day. It would not be possible without. All the money raised will go towards enhancing our children's lives at school.
