On Saturday 20th May from 12-5 the PTA at Holly Meadows Primary School will be holding MeadowFest on the school field.
This is a fete/fun day incorporating a football tournament, live music, craft stalls, traditional fete stalls, dog show and refreshments.
Our dog show has very kindly been sponsored by Sunnyside Veterinary Clinic in Roydon and Justin Kirkland from the clinic will be coming along to judge each class. There will be 8 classes in total (Best Puppy, Loveliest lady, Fab fella, Waggiest tail, Most appealing eyes, Young handler (under 16's), Best groomed and finally Dog judge would most like to take home) each class costs £1 to enter and you can register your dog on the day (dog show starts at 2.30pm).
Also during the afternoon we have live music provided by a variety of musicians playing everything from classical to current chart music, along with our school's very own Glee club and Samba drummers.
We are looking forward to welcoming groups from our community who will also be holding traditional fete stalls to fundraise for their groups plus some fantastic craft stalls coming along to sell their products.
If you want to spend the afternoon with us without worrying about spending a fortune we also have free activities available as well as our live music! Cheer on Holly Meadows Youth FC Under 9's in their very first home football tournament, explore a police car or fire engine and practice your circus skills with Crazy Banana's Children's Entertainer.
Refreshments are also available with a bar being provided by The Union Jack, Indian cuisine and Polish cakes and delicacies. We also have burgers, hot dogs, milk shakes and donuts to tempt you! And finally what fete would be complete without an ice cream van, bouncy castles or Face painting??
MeadowFest promises to be a real family and community event and we look forward to welcoming everyone to our school.
The PTA work hard all year to fundraise for equipment to enhance the children's learning as well as those little extras that school budgets would not allow. This event is to fundraise to relaunch Forest School as well as to purchase outdoor learning resources and revamp our school library, all things which will benefit every child in our school.
MeadowFest is getting bigger all the time and it's not too late to join us!! If you would like a stall or would like to donate a raffle prize please email Emma Whitmore on firstname.lastname@example.org call 07747111452.
