Summer Fayre 2018January 1st 2018
We are looking forward to this year's Summer Fayre which will be held on Friday 8th June.
As always this event has a lovely feeling of community. Attractions in the past have included a bouncy castle, face painting, Year 6 stalls, raffles and tombolas as well as performances from some of our after-school clubs. We are always looking for helpers so if you can help on the day to take part on a stall, or help to set up and clear away, we would appreciate your time.
