Annual PTA Summer Fête Raises Super Sum
The College’s annual Summer Fête and Motoring Festival is always a delightful afternoon with plenty for families to see and do.
So much hard work goes into organising the event and the College is hugely grateful to our dedicated PTA who do such an excellent job every year.
Sunday 23 June was no exception. The Orchard was transformed thanks to plenty of enthusiasm, gazebos and bunting and the British weather remained warm and dry after weeks of dark grey clouds and dismal rain, allowing organisers and visitors to relax and enjoy themselves.
At the bottom of the Orchard there was line upon line of classic and unusual cars on show. Polished to perfection by loving owners, proud to show off their prized vehicles, Hillman Imps sat alongside Morris Minors, Maseratis and TVRs and visitors wandered appreciatively in between, stopping to ask questions and admire their favourites.
An array of over 30 stalls offered all sorts of entertainment, goods and services, including homemade food, arts and crafts, gifts, fundraising activities, tombolas and so much more. And around the perimeter there was a whole lot of fun to be had whether you fancied the challenge of zorbing or the more old fashioned sport of archery.
A monumental number of burgers and sausages were barbequed and jugs full of Pimms poured and the crowds were entertained by members of the College’s Choir, Orchestra and Jazz Band, who are soon off on tour to Vienna.
What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and best of all, on the day, an outstanding £4,339.34 was raised which will benefit the learning of every pupil in the school. Huge thanks to all the organisers and visitors, see you again next year for more fun on Sunday 21 June 2020!
