The Chew Valley School summer fete was a great success on Saturday, despite the weather! Many hundreds of visitors enjoyed live music, great food, and fun and games.
Unfortunately the show jumping event had to be postponed (new date: Sunday 9th September!) but the ground was not too waterlogged for some successful rounds of miniature golf, and the challenge of the Chewlympics in the Sports Hall attracted many competitors.
There were impressive art and craft stalls, a table groaning with lucky dip prizes, and plenty of fundraising going on both for the school and for the forthcoming expedition to Tanzania. The Year 9 Enterprise team ran a fantastic pancake stall, and foodies could also choose from strawberries and cream, a range of Fair Trade tea and coffee, delicious ice cream, wood-fired pizza…the list goes on!
Entertainment was also first-class, including the combined primary schools’ choir in the main hall, Chew Valley’s own singing groups, and some fantastic solo performances. Many took the opportunity to tour the A-Level Art exhibition in the sixth form centre, and to have a go on the Chew Magna Fire Engine!
Thanks go to all the staff, students, parents and members of the local community who helped to make the event a success either by working behind the scenes, running stalls, performing, or just turning up to take part. Above all, thanks to Miss Bainbridge for bringing the event together so successfully. Let’s hope for sunshine next year…
