Spring Fair at St Mabyn

By Nicki Burdock
The sun shone on the pupils, parents and staff of St Mabyn School, as they enjoyed a well-attended spring fair – and raised more than £500 for the PTA's new polytunnel.
A spokesman for the school said: “The sun was shining, the hall looked wonderful full of exhibits and decorated with bunting, and the event was very well attended by families from the school as well as the local community. It was a fun-filled afternoon, with a barbecue and games.
"Categories included miniature gardens, something sewn, decorated pebbles, Lego, and showstopper bakes.
"It was such a success that we are hoping to make it an annual event in the village."
Charlie Daniels, chair of the PTA, said: “The PTA team are incredibly proud of the children. We are so grateful for the support of the school and the families in our community.
“We were overwhelmed by the talent of all those who entered. A huge well done and thank you: hope to see you next year.”
Emily Lofthouse, of the PTA, said: “We had so much fun with this event and it was really lovely to see the children and community as a whole coming together to make it such a success. I think we may need a bigger venue next year.”
Head teacher Alison McDonald said: “Everyone had a brilliant day. A huge thank you to the PTA who worked so hard to organise it.
“It was great to see the enthusiastic response of the children in the amount of work they produced.”
Year Two pupil, Tyler, said it was a “great day” and he had lots of fun, while Dexter, who attends the nursery, said he was “really happy” that his Lego model of Eden won.
