Staff, pupils and the local community were able to take advantage of a warm summer's afternoon in Wythenshawe when they enjoyed a traditional Summer Fayre.
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 staff and pupils showed their enthusiasm and entrepreneurial skills by running various games and stalls. 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 - this was a fun-filled day for all of the family!
Mrs Angie Holland from Saint Paul’s said: “What better way to spend a warm summer's afternoon in Wythenshawe than by soaking up the atmosphere of a traditional Summer Fayre? There was a whole host of attractions and everyone had great fun; we were joined by families and friends of the school. A big thank you to all those who helped, took part and contributed to the day. “
“We all had a fantastic time; it was an excellent opportunity for families, teachers and pupils to spend time together and have fun!“ commented Mrs Fiona Minshall, Head Teacher at Saint Paul’s. “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.”
