Traditional family fun at Ombersley school

Droitwich Editorial 27th Jun, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016   0

THERE will be plenty of traditional family fun at Ombersley Endowed First School between midday and 3pm next Saturday (July 4) when the annual summer fair takes place.

Among the attractions will be the parents’ tug o’ war competition, tombolas, a coconut shy, hook-a-duck, pony rides, face-painting, a bouncy castle, appearances from the local fire service and police dog and much more.

Delicious refreshments will be on offer, including a bar, Indian food, tea and cakes, ice creams and a barbecue.

And there will also be dancing around the Maypole, which has been a tradition kept alive at the school since it opened in 1876.

Admission is free for children and £1 for adults, which includes free entry into a prize draw.

Headteacher Caroline Moore said the summer fair was always a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and she hoped as many people as possible would go along.

“It’s a lovely way to mingle and have fun with other friends and families and raise much needed funds for our school.”

The summer fair has been organised by the Friends of Ombersley School and all money raised will go towards additional resources for the school.
