EVENTS in 2017-2018
Our fifth beer festival was a great success with many people attending due to the popularity of the previous events. The event was supported by hundreds of people enjoying local beers, ciders and wine. Local food producers, funfair rides, tea room and tuck shop, BBQ and live music from local bands were also a great part of the day. A big thanks was given to the main organisers of the event on behalf of the PTA.
Cake, Ice Lolly, Production Refreshments, Nearly New Uniform Sales & Misc. Items
Our annual themed cake sales for Valentine’s Day, Easter and Halloween were enjoyed once again. Nearly New Uniform sales were sometimes run alongside these, as and when the weather allowed. Our Friday ice lolly sales were a resounding success, with the need for a queueing system to be introduced so we could keep up with demand!
The KS2 Production refreshments were also so popular we sold out of most of our drinks.
Fireworks night was extremely well attended and enjoyed by all.
Christmas Festive Fun Afternoon, Hamper Raffle, Secret Santa Gift Store and Santa’s Grotto
This year we held a ‘shopping village’ at our Christmas fun afternoon once more, as it was enjoyed last year.
Christmas Cards & Other Gifts
Many beautiful designs were received from the children for their Christmas cards. Parents also had the option of the design being printed on gift items too, eg: a tea towel or mug etc. The finished products were colourful and made very special cards and keepsakes.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the night and thought the ‘dance-off’ against some of the parent helpers was hilarious!
We wanted to offer the children a little activity to take part in to celebrate Easter. Lots of entries of decorated eggs were received in various categories.
This year our theme for the Summer fair was ‘Beside the Seaside’.
The Donkey Rides and Steel Band created a carnival atmosphere. The day was sunny and the event was busy with the school playground and field alive with colour and excitement throughout the whole event.
