IT WAS a Wild West Summer Fayre on the Green for Wisborough Green Primary School on Saturday June 10 and £4,000 was raised.
A couple of thousand people enjoyed the 40 stalls, with face painting, smash the china, boozy wheelbarrow, wild west shootout, barbeque, as well as alpacas and goats to see and touch.
Central to the green was activities with the children’s parade led by the Summer Queen and her entourage.
The Maypole flower girls followed, they took to the maypole fairy step perfect, watched by the wild west gang and all.
The day’s entertainment continued with Line Dancing, Wild West Hoedown, gymnastics, a school Thriller performance and the Saloon Girls, mums, teachers and, some dads, all dressed up for the show.
The Fayre was aimed at entertaining and getting all the children, parents, family, friends and the community involved in an afternoon of fun in the centre of the village.
“We have an amazing PTA that raise a lot of money for the school and all money raised today will go towards school projects,” said headteacher Trudy Emberson.
“This is my first Summer Fayre and the support from local businesses and all has been fantastic. We have been talking about the fayre since September and planning, with the PTA and teachers, started in January.”
Natasha Todd was voted for by the school children to be crowned Summer Queen 2011.
“I’m really happy all the children voted for me,” she said.
