Summer School Fete success
To celebrate the opening of Branton Community Primary School in September 2016, the Summer Fete held on Saturday 25 June 2016 was a great success!
Running and counting…what fun!
With fun and free children’s activities, including a treasure hunt, pony rides, football practice, naming a sheep…and more…there were happy, smiling children and adults everywhere. Despite an early threat of rain, the weather held out and the sun also smiled on proceedings.
The Forest School demonstration, with an opportunity to toast marshmallows, was a particular favourite with everyone in festive mood.
There were some excellent refreshments for sale; including cakes, pulled pork sandwiches, hot dogs, and drinks.
All in all, it was a small triumph and a real credit to the goodwill and enthusiasm of the staff and volunteers of our local rural school. And, of course, many thanks to the Friends of Branton First School (PTA) for organising the event.

See you next year?
There will be a PTA meeting on Monday 4 July at 4:30pm to look at what fundraising events might be next. So, if you have any ideas, come along or you can always phone or email the school.
