A reason to go to school on Saturday
chisenhale summer fete, primary school

Most kids look forward to the weekend for a very special reason. No school. But on the 6th July, you might just convince them that going to school on a Saturday is a good idea.

Chisenhale Primary School is holding their annual summer fete between 11am-2pm this Saturday, and with all the activities on offer, this three-hour break time is something that no child (or adult) is going to want to miss. It is free entry for children, 1 for adults, and all the money raised will go towards improving the playground (so the kids can have even more fun).

While the kids are having a Tiggerific time on the bouncy castle, you can browse an array of stalls, tempt your taste buds at the world food market, and paint your fingers green in an organic gardening session run by Cassie Liversidge. The local gardener will also be selling signed copies of her book, Grow Your Own Ingredients Pasta Sauce Once you've learnt how to grow your ingredients, you have the choice of cooking up your own fresh dishes or taking up the offer by local culinary whizz, Ali Noor, who will prepare a dinner party for you in your home (plus do the washing up).

The fun does not end with the summer fete, as there will be two auctions, in which you can bid for two great days out. The first auction is for theatre tickets to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night, along with a copy of the script signed by playwright, Simon Stephens, and author, Mark Haddon. The second auction is a personal shopping trip with top designer, Rowena Chalmers.

Schools definitely in for summer, this year. Or at least Saturday.
