Tawa fair gets support from local businesses
Some classroom renovations will mean a change to the layout of the Tawa School fair on Saturday.
‘‘We are very lucky to have a huge field behind the classrooms, where we can put lots of stalls and activities,’’ fair committee member Karen Taylor said.
Thanks to the support of Tawa and Porirua businesses, there are some great silent auctions, prizes and raffles, she said.
One raffle is for a signed hardback poster of the 2014 Hurricanes, ‘‘perfect for the man cave’’, Taylor said.
One local business that will be back again after being a great success last year is Zelati Gelato.
There will be a variety of other delicious food to eat, including the Hellers sausage sizzle, bacon butties and a vegetarian curry made by one of the school parents.
Each class at school has been making things for the fair, including homemade lemonade, sherbet, toffee apples and some great crafts.
Wayne, the school caretaker, will also be displaying his model trains and for a small donation people at the fair can have a go at being the train controller.
Funds from the fair will be used to continue to enhance outdoor areas at the school.
The fair will be opened by the school kapa haka group and there will be entertainment by local band The Surf Daddies and the Tawa College Cheerleaders.
Tawa School fair, Oxford St, 11am till 2pm, rain or shine.
