Eye Primary School Summer Fete

Full of interactive activities and inflatable fun, the annual Eye Primary School Summer Fete is a brilliant way to get the kids out of the house and enjoy the weekend. The Fete was held on the 22nd June from 12pm – 3pm.

The event, ran by the ESA (Eye School Association), was free to enter, welcoming the public to enjoy the sunny weather. It was a fundraiser event to raise money for the school, which will be spent on any general resources or equipment that is needed. The fete was home to multiple inflatable slides and play areas, including a little one safer for smaller children. For just £2, you get a green wristband and unlimited fun on the inflatables! My 18 month old niece absolutely loved the inflatables and didn’t want to leave!

As well as the inflatables, there were also numerous stalls and fun games to play – including tombola (10 tickets for £1), raffle, guess how many sweets are in the jar, roll the dice to get a prize, and even more! I decided to have a go on the tombola – I picked out my ten tickets but it wasn’t looking too hopeful until I got to the 9th – and won a candle! There was also a virtual reality game indoors for you technology lovers.

If you were feeling hungry you could get some popcorn or even head over to the barbecue, offering sausages, burgers, and even vegetarian options. For barbecue food starting at £2, I would say that the prices are reasonable for a summer fete.  If you wanted something on the sweeter side you could take a walk indoors to the cake stall. With lots to offer, the cakes were popular amongst visitors – most opting for the nostalgic primary school fudge tart. There was also an ice cream van onsite, offering ice creams and lollies. There were plenty of soft drinks available, as well as an alcoholic bar for the parents.

We took a walk indoors to the cake stall where we were greeted by a huge variety of cakes and cookies, with cakes for sale from just 50p. I had some of the fudge tart and it was incredible! Students from the school were sat around enjoying the cakes and a soft drink. You could get a canned drink for £1 or a cup of juice for 50p.

All members of staff and volunteers were welcoming and accommodating, making it an enjoyable experience. Overall, it was a lovely day and if you are looking for a fun event to attend with your kids, then I highly recommend the Eye primary School Summer Fete.
