There is no FoMPS Summer Fayre and Scarecrow Hunt this year, as we alternate arranging the Fayre each year with St John’s Church. Details of this year’s event on Saturday 2nd July 2016 are on Facebook.
The FoMPS Summer Fayre and Scarecrow Hunt will return in 2017.
It’s the Summer Fayre and Scarecrow Hunt this Saturday, 4th July. Pick up your Scarecrow Hunt Clue Sheet from the Registration Desk (see map) from 1pm. The Fayre runs from 2 until 4.30pm.
Highlights this year include the Fancy Dress Parade at 3pm with a prize for the best dressed Children’s Book Character, Running Races at 3.30pm and the Balloon Race at 4.30pm.
In between, pick up a hotdog and a Pimms at the bar and barbecue, test your skills in the Penalty Shoot Out, browse for a bargain at the book stall and enjoy games including Splat the Rat, Hook a Duck and Tin Can Alley.
See you Saturday!
A huge thank you to all these local businesses who have kindly sponsored a Scarecrow this year:
Tickets are now on sale for our annual ladies’ walk. It will be a great opportunity to socialise and meet new mums. We will be setting off from school at 10.00am, and the walk will be 9-10 miles including a lunch stop in Ilkley and a couple of very important refreshment stops! For those who don’t wish to walk as far, there will be options to hop on the train to meet at the next venue.
Tickets cost £15 per person (which includes lunch). If you would like to get your hands on a ticket then please contact Helen Dixon or Rachel Holder in the KS2 playground or Helen Parkin or Cathy Wallace in the KS1 playground.
Alternatively, if you’re not in the playground you can still buy tickets by texting 07946 400279 (please include your name and how many tickets you require).
The Scarecrow Hunt and Summer Fayre take place this year on Saturday 4th July.
The theme for this year’s Scarecrow Hunt is Children’s Books. The hunt starts at 1pm from the school playground and should take 60-90 minutes to complete, with a great prize for the person or family that correctly identifies the most scarecrows. If you’d like to get into character, Mrs Wilson will be judging the best children’s book fancy dress at the Fayre.
The Summer Fayre runs from 2 to 4.30pm, with all the traditional stalls and games you would expect, including coconut shy, tombola, penalty shoot out and more, plus races for children and adults. For refreshments, we will have a bar and barbecue plus cream teas and ice cream too.
We’ve had an incredible start to the 2014/15 year. Our inaugural Golf Day raised an amazing £2,300 and the Christmas Fayre raised an absolutely astonishing £2,700. Thank you to everyone who gave their time to organise, run and attend these events. We really appreciate your continued support.
Our fundraising focus this year is to help provide outdoor play facilities, and develop the pond and woodland area. You may have already seen work has started on the pond which we’re very excited to see. Why not follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with developments?
