9th May 2013: Fairtrade Fun Fete was a success!

DSC02395The After School Fairtrade Fun Fete took place in St Peter’s the 9th May and attracted enthusiastic children (and parents) from the area. They enjoyed the bouncy castle and various traditional games.

DSC02380DSC02378DSC02375St Peter’s was buzzing with activity; children throwing hoops, watching puppets, making banana splits, creating friendship bracelets, spotting Fairtrade hidden objects, sewing bananas, drinking refreshments, bouncing and more besides!

Thank you to all the bakers of buns and cakes and to those who are not part of our regular crew who joined in.
