Warren summer fete this weekend

WARREN Primary School in Chafford Hundred is holding a grand fundraising Summer Fayre on Saturday 30th June.

The event, organised by Warren PTFA (Fundraising) and sponsored by Lakeside Spur Steak & Grill, will take place in the school grounds on Gilbert Road from 1.00pm to 5.00pm.

Entry is free, everyone’s welcome, and all the traditional fun of the fayre is promised, with displays, face painting, competitions, delicious food and drink and live music throughout the afternoon. Traditional stalls include lucky dip, coconut shy and hook a duck and other stalls will be selling handmade jewellery, bags and other accessories. Kids will love bouncing on the inflatables, splatting the rat, soaking the teacher and the penalty shootout. A local fire engine will be visiting, too.

Live performances include a display from AA Dance, plus live music from local bands
Tall Dark Friend, Paper City, Pure and headline act, singer and songwriter Jakob Deist. Jakob performed at the previous fundraising event held at the school in October last year, when he was an instant hit with old and young alike.

There are also some great prizes to be won. Spur Steak & Grill is sponsoring a kids colouring competition, offering a first prize of a Nintendo Wii. Raffle prizes including products from Lush, food vouchers from both Spur Steak & Grill and 210BC, a month’s free tuition at Explore Learning, a summer hamper, Vue cinema ticket, Partyman World family tickets amongst others have been generously donated by other local stores and businesses.

All sorts of food and drink will be available, with cake and sweet stalls, strawberries and cream and ice cream. The Spur Steak & Grill team will be firing up the barbie with their sizzling hot dogs, burgers, ribs and wings, donating all profits to the school funds.

Said Warren Primary School head, Mrs Pritchard, “This is going to be a lovely community event and a great opportunity for us to raise funds for the school, so we’re hoping for a good turnout on the day. We really appreciate the hard work of the PTFA and Spur and all our other supporters and I have every confidence that we’re going to surpass the total of £1300 raised at our previous fundraising events!’

Said Lakeside Spur Steak & Grill management, “As a local business I believe it’s all about building lasting relationships with the local community, We are really happy to support Warren Primary School with their fundraising events.
