The summer fete held by St Michaels C of E Primary School in Steventon, Oxfordshire, is set to be bigger and better this year as it expands onto the village green, with a little help from our Thames Valley region.
For the first time the event will break out of the school grounds for a day of traditional fun, and activities on the village green on Saturday June 20th, starting at 2pm and with live music going on into the evening.
Billed as Festival on the Green, the day will include old fashioned mini fairground-style rides plus a selection of stalls, art & craft activities, storytelling sessions, giant inflatables, pony rides, sports demonstrations, a children's disco, and food and drink.
We made a donation worth £1,000 to help pay for the stage and signing. The event will raise money to help replace the school’s old playground equipment with brand new items.
Emma Drozd, one of the organisers, said: “We are delighted that Linden Homes are supporting our Festival on the Green. It’s going to be a wonderful afternoon with entertainment, music, food and drink.”
Steve Garton, Linden Homes Thames Valley sales and marketing director, added: “Village events like Festival on the Green help to make up the lifeblood of rural communities so we are delighted to join in and lend a hand.”
