Fun at the fete
by Sara-Jane Ludemann
The West Melton School Fete is being hailed a success with hundreds turning up to make the day a memorable event.
The fete, held on Sunday, was organised by Friends of West Melton School and the school’s PTA, and was aimed at raising funds for the development of a new play area for the growing school. The school’s promotions officer Rita Spadoni said most of the credit for the fete being such a success was the work of the Friends of West Melton School. “Chair Amelia Leadbetter and her committee did a fabulous job,” Ms Spadoni said.
“They had been organising the event for more than a year, which made the day run very smoothly. The children were really enthusiastic about it, setting up their own stalls and entertaining the crowd, and it was really well supported by the community with such a huge turnout.”
