Malborough School Summer Fair raises more than £700

Blog Tags

Malborough with South Huish Primary School PTFA held their summer fair on Saturday and raised a whopping £731.

The day started with a bit of doubt over the weather, but it got gradually better as time went on and organiser Lynsey Knight opened the fair with some of the children doing a ‘Wake and Shake’ so everyone was energised and ready to go.

The stalls, which began inside the Malborough Village Hall and migrated outside as the sun came out, included books, raffles, homemade crafts, candles and scents, hook-a-duck and a very popular crockery smash.

Some of the wide range of stalls available to browse

Dave Crunchy Carrot provided entertainment for the children - extra popular was the bouncy castle, especially when the snow machine (bubbles) was turned on! Meanwhile the adults could browse the stalls, visit the bar, have a yummy cream tea, or pay £1 to throw some wet sponges at some Year 6 children! 

The children loved Dave Crunchy Carrot's fake snow machine!

Local band Little Mischief were down a member due to self isolation, but still gave an awesome performance and kept everyone happy and smiling through their whole set.

Lynsey was very thankful to everyone who had helped make the event a success, especially Miriam, Siobhan, Claire, Georgie, the parents and the school staff as well as everyone who attended. 

The bouncy castles stayed popular all day

She said: “A big thank you to Lucy at the Winking Prawn for donating the cream teas, Paul Gritton from Alan’s Apple for the coconuts, and of course the fabulous Crunchy Carrot for keeping the children entertained all day.

“I would also like to thank Father Christian and his lovely wife Pippa Hill for their help. Not forgetting the wonderful Year 6s for running the stalls, and the generous help from the parents and carers of the children!

“We would like to thank the generosity of the local businesses that donated, there are too many to mention . A big thank you to my husband, Lee, and my son, Aarron, for keeping everyone fed!

“We hope everyone enjoyed the day and we will look forward to seeing you all next year on Saturday, 9 July!”

They money raised by the PTFA will be going to finish the school library project and to raise funds for an outdoor learning classroom.
