Fantastic Summer Fair

Hundreds of friends and family enjoyed the wonderful weather as the sun shone down on the summer fair.

The ice cream van and drinks stalls were definitely popular as the children enjoyed face painting and the toy tombola.

Despite the hot weather the chocolate tombola and the obstacle course were packed, while others queued for the teddy stall.

For the 2nd year running ‘Tally’ the pony, from Stepney Bank Stables, was star of the show with dozens of children queuing up to meet her.

A massive thanks to everyone who helped out, especially Mrs Ford for all her efforts with the ‘Hook a Bag’ stall and her wonderful crafts.
