Bridstow School Strawberry Fair

Bridstow School's Strawberry Fair was a great success on Saturday. Despite the rather damp weather, the school was crowded with people taking part in the fun and enjoying the displays. Local guitarist, Simon Titley entertained people with songs before Paul Ellery, Drivetime presenter of Wyvern FM officially opened the proceedings.

The Wyvern team were very friendly and as well as entertaining everybody, helped out with announcements throughout the afternoon. The team also gave the children balloons and bags full of sweets and information on recycling.

There were lots of competitions and games, a fantastic raffle, (Tina won a £30 voucher to dine at the Red Lion) and there was a lovely chance for parents and children to work together, making oak leaves to add to a beautiful painting by Cheshire artist, Paul Bradley. The painting will eventually hang in the library.

The total sum raised by this lovely event is not yet known, but judging by the queues at the barbecue and refreshment stalls, the bottle stall, treasure map and all of the other attractions, I think it fair to say that the organizers and those who attended did pretty well for the school.
