Sunny summer day, taking the kids to fayre, the sounds of giggles from a bouncy castle as you watch them ‘splat-a-rat’ whilst the waft of the BBQ hangs in air, the cooling beer in one hand and some bargains you bought from the craft stalls in the other…

We have all been through some unprecedented times and as things start to improve, our school are trying to organise a lovely summer event to raise funds for the children as well as supporting/advertising and local businesses. We would like to put on this event on Saturday 3rd July from 1pm.

We’ll be offering pitches/stalls/tables for £15 to those who want to attend but we are also looking for raffle prizes and offering advertising space for £5 per half page.

We are a registered charity, supporting our local primary school in purchasing additional books, play equipment for the children as well as putting on fun events for pupils and the wider community.
