The Freda Gardham County Primary School Fete was held on Friday 9 July. The weather was somewhat overcast but in spite of the occasional drop of moisture the event was very successful with children, parents, friends and visitors enjoying a great afternoons entertainment. Deputy Head Jane Howard asserted, “the best ever attended function the school has held”. The sounds of live music provided by “D-Finitive” set the mood with singer and guitarist brothers Jacob and Caleb Howard-Almond accompanied by drummer Matt Wilson. Other highlights of the day were the pony and donkey rides, balloon popping, treasure hunts, the chicken walk, pick-a-peg, an assault course and the lazer storm to name a few! There were refreshments served all afternoon, a cake sale, a tombola and a raffle thanks to all the members of the Parents and Friends Association (PASA) who worked diligently to put the event on. Their efforts brought in £1,300 which PASA will use towards the building of a music shelter, which the children have designed, in the activity field.
