Summer Fair 1st July

Friends of Ashfield held a super Summer Fair even though the British weather would have you believe it wasn't summer.  

Entertainment included:refreshments, a barbeque, Diddy Dennis, a disco, face painting and tatoos.  Year 6 also used the opportunity to sell products from their Enterprise Lessons.

The raffle was extremely popular once again.  Unclaimed raffle prizes are in my office.  Please collect them soon as they are very tempting!

We have made a profit of approximately £470, which will go towards bringing the cost down of the super star trip and other rewards.

Thank you everyone for your support, whether it was setting up, manning stalls, providing custom for the stalls or clearing up.
