Friends of Claverdon presents... the Summer Fayre 2024!

It's getting to that exciting time of the year again, where Friends of Claverdon have the pleasure of hosting the Summer Fayre! Taking place after sports day, this is an amazing, fun filled event that raises vital funds for our school. However, this is only is possible with the generous help of the teachers and parents/carers of the school community. 


We are reaching out to you all for volunteers from each year group to help with this year’s event. We'll need help running the events and an event leader for each year.

Stalls and activities

Below are the proposed stalls for each year group. Any any ideas for further activities/stalls are very welcome.  Stalls will be open 3:15pm to 5:15pm (approx).  Class reps can help to communicate and co-ordinate with their year group.

In addition, due to the success of last year, this year we are also going BIG with the inflatables on the field - we can't wait to see the children's faces!

This year we are trying pizza slices and hot dogs.  All cooked in the ovens, and just to be served.

A team is needed to put food in the ovens (sausages and pizza), bring the food out from the kitchen and serve it.
