All The Fun of The Fair

I never nicked any coconuts gov - honest!

This afternoon along with my colleague Cllr Steve Williams I attended my first School Summer Fair of the season at Foxfield School in Douglas Drive.    The weather was overcast but very warm and the event was really well attended.   It had all the usual stalls, raffle, auction and a baerbecue for burgers and hot dogs.     One of the most popular attractions was throwing cold wet sponges at Andre Baird, the Headteacher, well done Andre! 

I was delighted that the Mersey Tunnels Police attended bringing along one of their Landrovers for the kids to get an idea of what the Tunnel Police do, (Merseytravel have a very special relationship with Foxfield).   Merseyside Fire and REscue Service als came along and you can imagine their Fire Appliance was a real draw for the youngsters, and the mums, dads and grandparents.      

Sadly I did not win anything in the raffle (well I have not had a call yet?) but I did bid successfully for a bottle of Champagne.   Set myself a top bid of £8, but got sucked into the bidding war and ended up paying £11, still great value.

Hopefully the event will have raised lots of money for the school and I would like to put on record my thanks to all those people who organised the event, all the local businesses that supported  it by donating raffle prizes as well as auction items, and of course everyone who attended making the day the success that it was.    Next Saturday its on to Christchurch School Summer Fair, follwed the following FRiday with Lingham Primary School………

Foxfield School Summer Fair!

This was my last event of a very busy Saturday and I attended with my colleague, Cllr Leah Fraser, who is the Prospective MP for Moreton and Wallasey.

Web CB Coconut Foxfield June 2009The Fair was extremely well attended and had loads of stalls, cake stalls, play your cards right, bric-a-brac, books, soak the Headmaster (good sport Andre), tea and coffee, barbecue and of course the traditional coconut shy.  Yep thats me pictured with my catch from the coconut stall.

Leah and I chatted with the Chair of Governors, parents and children and everyone was having a great time.  The School does a great job for the children who have special needs, and is a real asset to the local arera and the wider Wirral community.

It has been a busy Saturday, Spaceport, Harvest Court and Foxfield School.  Feet up tonight with a nice glass of wine……………………
