Forncett celebrates the Jubilee

Written by Su Leavesley.

And how we celebrated! It rained; it was cold; but if the Queen could stand it on that boat (sorry, barge) on the Thames, then who are we to grumble?

Painted by the children of Forncett School, this banner was the centre piece of the party at the school on Friday. All the children were dressed in their royal-most clothing, and there were six Busby-wearing gentlemen to guard the ‘Queen’ and her close family. Several of the children performed songs, dances and jokes to entertain and delight the parents, guests, teachers and staff.

Forncett Fete 2011

Written by Sally Hibbler.

A BIG thank you to everyone for attending and helping with the fete.

Following the initial count of the takings at the fete, the fete has raised, after expenses, £1,654.68!  Obviously this may change slightly when counted again. A further £750 should also be added as part of Barclays donations to local charities.

WELL DONE to everyone
