The Summer Fair #CountryKids

Last weekend the kids and I enjoyed all of the fun of the fair at the primary school Summer fĂȘte. It was a beautiful day for it and there was plenty to keep the children entertained, and my purse empty! But it was all for the benefit of the school (the event raised £2500) so it was money well spent.
There was a bouncy slide, a climbing tower, lots of stalls with games like human fruit machine and a ring toss, stands from the Army Cadets (which L & H loved) as well as the local police and fire service (H wants to be a policeman when he grows up so he was particularly impressed by this, and E loved sitting in the fire engine), a barbecue and very importantly, a Pimms tent along with live music and performances from the staff and children made it a really enjoyable day.
We spent the entire afternoon there and although L refused to take part in the dance performance that his class had prepared, they all got involved in the activities - and particularly enjoyed throwing wet sponges at the staff - and had a really lovely time.

  2. We had a fire engine at our school fair, and the kids were really looking forward to seeing it. As it was also parked right next to my face painting stall I was looking forward to an afternoon of admiring fireman. Unfortunatly about 5 minutes into the fair they recieved a 999 call and had to leave, never to return. Next year eh
