There was a distinct spirit of festivity during this year’s HCA Summer Fete, an annual event that provides a welcome opportunity for the whole Heritage community to gather in a beautiful setting and enjoy fun and togetherness all while raising funds for the school. It was lovely to see children spending time together and with their families in the beautiful outdoor setting, enjoying the pony rides, sponge throwing, welly wanging, teddy bear tombola, face painting, candy floss, raffle, and so much more. Once again, the dog show was a highlight of the day, as families paraded their pets for a chance to win in categories like best dressed and waggiest tail. Despite a forecast of thunderstorms, the rain held out until the very end, at which point everyone headed out feeling very satisfied after a day full of fun. Thank you to each of the HCA committee members, parents, staff and other members of the Heritage community who contributed time, talents and other gifts to make it a fantastic day and a successful event overall. Over £1,700 was raised, to go towards reflooring and staging improvements in Panton Hall.
A big thank you to Tom and Cecilia Amies and family for so generously offering the use of their home and property, not only for the fete but also the Year 4 Camp the day before! And additional huge thanks to Vicki Grebe, who so wonderfully managed the planning for the fete, along with Cecilia Amies, Ellie Stoneley, and Irenee Daly.
