All the fun of the fair

On Saturday, it was all the fun of the fair as the PTA’s annual fund raiser was blessed with sunshine and good weather. At a slightly earlier time, we welcomed almost 900 children and adults to Wessex for a relaxed and enjoyable community event.

We were entertained by maypole dancers, Glee Club singers, ukulele playing musicians, keep fitters and hip hop dancers.

The burgers sold out, the bar did a roaring trade (especially the Pimms), the Lions Train chugged around the field and the wellies? Well, they were whanged with enthusiasm!

It was a fabulous event and I would like to thank the dedicated PTA team for bringing it all together so successfully, raising an amazing £3000 for the school in the process. Well done ladies (and gents) and thank you.

Fireworks Night Success

THANK YOU so much to everyone who came and supported the fireworkd event tonight, and to everyone who helped make it happen. Thank you for your time, your hard work and your money. We hope that whatever you were doing, you enjoyed it.

We are sincerely sorry to those we had to turn away. It was completely unavoidable due to safety capacity restrictions. If you missed out this year please try, if possible, to buy your tickets in advance next year to ensure you get in on the night.

Best fireworks we’ve seen for a looooong time! Well done all involved!

Amazing fireworks tonight. Best I have seen in a long time!
