sun and fun at summer fete

On Saturday August 22nd, Sparkle hosted their 5th annual Summer fete. Over 100 families joined us at Serennu to enjoy a few hours of fun, entertainment and also lovely food.

There were lots of activities taking place and a definite plus was the sunshine that made it’s appearance for the event. The beautiful owls from the Owl Sanctuary were a big hit with everybody and also we were lucky to have the local Community Police Officers who joined in with the fun answering loads of questions and allowing the youngsters to try on police uniforms.

Families had the opportunity to play traditional fairground games, like knock down the can and hoopla, but they also had the chance to win prizes with raffles, teddy naming, guess the weight of the cake, tombola plus a sweetie tombola and many other things. There were various stalls selling local handicrafts and as usual, once again, the fantastic homemade cake stall.

One Mum said “ it is a brilliant fete and I really enjoying coming along each year”. Another parent said “there is loads to do to keep my child occupied, I feel really relaxed”. Sparkle would like to say a special thank you to everyone who made the day a success, including all our wonderful volunteers, people who gave the donations that were used on the day, and all our families who attended.

Keep a look out for information regarding our next family event, which will be the Halloween disco on 30th October 2015.
