All the fun of the Fair!
On Saturday it was the Westholme Association Spring Fair held at the Senior School, and despite the mixed weather there was a really good turn out in support of the event.
As always there was a fantastic selection of stalls, activities and amusements to occupy all ages including the tombola, lucky dip and candyfloss stand which seemed to be extremely popular.
There were nearly new books and toys, a crafts table and a princess stall for the children, a nail bar and designer bag lucky dips stall for the ladies, and of course a tempting range of cakes and treats for the dads!
It was impossible to miss the stunning plant display, and of course everyone’s favourite; the Shajan Takeaway Kitchen.
Some brave staff took their turn in the stocks so that enthusiastic visitors could hurl freezing cold wet sponges at them for a small fee! Whilst in the Sports Hall things got really energetic with the bouncy castle and the Bungee challenge.
For those in need of a rest from all of the excitement there were teas and coffees and a wide range of cakes from the School Kitchen which even the St. John’s Ambulance team manged to find a moment to enjoy. So really the only thing missing from the day was the sun, but that didn’t stop everyone having a wonderful time!
Many thanks to the Westholme Association and all of those helpers who supported the Spring Fair. Whether through donations, setting up, running a stall, spending money (!), clearing up or any other unspecified way – many thanks for helping to make the day a success. There was a lovely atmosphere throughout and a real sense of Westholme community. Your contribution is greatly and the final total raised was over £4,500 !!
Thank you to all those who helped & attended….it wouldn’t be possible without you!As always the proceeds go towards our pupils and our school – thank you!
