Save the date! Summer Fair 

On this rainy February day it feels like a very fine thing to share a save the date for the Summer Fair!

There has been a lot of interest and proposals for running the fair on a weekend, and we are delighted to announce we will host the event Saturday 8th June. 

 

This year we envision the Summer Fair being a key event, and we want to go big and bold. Our plan is to hire a marquee. In the chance of a heat wave it creates a cool space, and in the chance of rain, a dry place. Either way, you’ll recognise me in my anti-hayfever hazmat suit.  

And we plan to do double duty with the marquee and, in the evening of the 8th June, hold a barn dance, open mic night, or Ceilidh. So a family-focused event during the day, and one for us adults in the evening.  Ideas welcome!   

Call for Volunteers

Given that we are doing this on a Saturday, pulling off a successful event is firmly in the hands of us parents as volunteers. And as the saying goes, many hands make light work. 

If you are interested in joining the Summer Fair planning circle please let Carl Rogers know directly (07875 660 866). This is an opportunity to share your ideas to make the event as successful as possible, and to support the practicalities of making it happen!
