Wealth of activities on offer at local school’s traditional summer fair

30th May 2019

Swalecliffe Community Primary School’s annual summer fair will be held on Sunday 9 June between noon and 3pm.

Organised by the school’s Parents and Friends Association (PFA), the free-to-attend event will feature a wealth of traditional activities, including an inflatable assault course, a sweet jar hoopla, splat the rat, a welly toss, raffles and a tombola. Adults will also have the chance to win a ‘barrow of booze’.

Ben Cooper, Headteacher at Swalecliffe Community Primary School, said: “The summer fair is always an enjoyable and popular event, and we’re hoping that bumper crowds will turn out this year to support the school and enjoy the attractions on offer.”

Some of the school’s pupils will also demonstrate their talents in performances on the day, and firefighters from Whitstable Fire Station will attend to give children the opportunity to get a close-up look inside a fire engine.

Hannah Jordan, Chair of the PFA, said: “The committee aims to put on an event that is fun and varied, but also affordable for all. There will be plenty of games for the children to try out, from guess the name of the soft toy and a sweet jar hoopla, to splat the rat and a marble run. The adults are always fans of the bottle tombola, too!”

Sarah Bogard, a Senior Solicitor at law firm Furley Page, which sponsors the Summer Fair, has two children at the school and is an active member of the PFA. She said: “The Summer Fair is always a fun day out, and it’s great to see so many families enjoying themselves. There are a lot of parents and guardians who have their own business, working around the school runs, and we welcome local small businesses to have a stall at the fair to sell their products.”
