What better way to spend a hot summer's afternoon in Wythenshawe than by soaking up the atmosphere of a traditional Summer Fayre at Saint Paul’s.
The Summer Fayre was a great success bringing all the traditions, trappings and trimmings of an English country village fete to the heart of Wythenshawe. The fayre boasted food, fun fair rides, drink and craft stalls, live music, dancing, children's activities, tombola and lashings of community spirit.
The fayre was well attended by families and friends of the school and there were many wonderful gifts to buy including a wide selection of fabulous home-made cakes, beautiful plants and flowers and a variety of international food. There were also many exciting prizes which had been donated by local businesses to be won on the raffle.
The stalls presented a wide variety of items for sale ranging from plants to books to cards to jewellery and a host of 'collectables'. On the food side we had an excellent BBQ and afternoon teas and served by a band of cheerful volunteers.
“We all had a fantastic time; it was an excellent opportunity for families, teachers and students to spend time together,” commented Mrs Angie Holland from Saint Paul’s. “There was a whole host of attractions and everyone had great fun. A big thank you to all those who helped, took part and contributed to the day.”
Mr Tony Billings, Executive Headteacher at Saint Paul’s said: “A tremendous amount was packed into those three hours and with a brilliant turnout of visitors. I would like to thank all those who made cakes, manned stalls and who contributed in so many ways to make the Fayre such a success; their help and support was very much appreciated.”
