Praise for new ‘friends’ after successful day
Published on: 10 Jul 2015
The sun shone and people came out in numbers on Sat 4th July for the Shield Rd School Summer Fayre.
All the usual attractions were there along with some new features including some classic cars that proved very popular, and a comedy photo booth that saw children and adults strike amusing poses with props against a range of backgrounds.
The large crowd were also treated to dance and martial arts displays and a wide range of refreshments to keep them sustained while they were entertained.
The Fayre was organised by the Friends of Shield Rd (FOSR) and was the largest event on their busy calendar of events to raise funds - estimated at £1,600 - for the successful and expanding school
Vice Chair of FOSR Louise Davies said: “We are so pleased that we got the weather after all the planning that goes into an event like this.
“FOSR are in a transition stage where newer parents are being mentored by some of the longer standing “Friends” in order to learn from them before they move on with their children.
“So to have such a successful event run with some less experienced people involved is great. It was fantastic to see so many new and prospective parents and particularly nice to be supported by so many
people from other schools in the area.”
FOSR welcome new members and any help is gratefully appreciated no matter how little time you may be able to spare. If you are interested just pop into the school office and ask for details.
