Longmoor's Summer Fair.
We woke up on Saturday morning to torrential rain, but being British we made the decision to carry on with the fair and go to plan B, setting up inside.
By 12 noon the rain had stopped and people began to come. It was amazing how much support we had.
The face painters had the longest queue ever!
We had Bricks4Kidz, hook a duck, splat a rat and many other games. The raffle went well and the new fangled scooter was won by one of the Vibz fundraisers, she was thrilled.
We sold crafts, books, DVDs and of course, a huge amount of food.
Vibz dance group performed 3 dances, which once again were absolutely fantastic. It never ceases to amaze me how talented young people are !
I would like to thank the PTFA for all of their hard work in organising the event and the staff for giving up their time to run stalls.
It was truly a community event.
I would also like to thank everyone who made donations, without you we wouldn't have a summer fair.
At the moment I don't have a final figure for what was raised but I think it will be in excess of £2000, amazing! It was actually £2130!
Thank you once again for your wonderful support.
Mrs Allcock's son, Paul, works for Barclays Bank and he put Longmoor Primary School forward to benefit from their match funding charitable programme. Barclays have given the school £1000 towards our PTFA funds. This is wonderful as now the PTFA will be able to pay for more projects around school. We are lucky to have local people who support our school. A huge 'thank you' goes to Barclays Bank.
