The sun fi­nally shows its face for Den­ham Vil­lage school fete

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AN an­nual school sum­mer fete was blessed by sun for the first time in its four year history and man­aged to raise £800.

The Den­ham Vil­lage In­fant School, on Cheap­side Lane, held the an­nual event in the school grounds on Satur­day from noon un­til 3pm. Wendy Cope, chair­man of Friends of Den­ham Vil­lage In­fant School (FODVIS), was “gob­s­macked” with the amount that was raised, be­cause “for such a small school, that’s amaz­ing”.

De­spite it be­ing the fourth sum­mer fete she has or­gan­ised, it was the first time it didn’t rain.

She said: “It was the first sum­mer one it hasn’t rained. The man with the bouncy castle said he was pre­pared for the in­doors.”

For Miss Cope the day is solely about the chil­dren. She said: “It was a lovely day. It was re­ally nice to see the bairns en­joy­ing them­selves.” She added: “It was all about them. For me it’s al­ways been about the chil­dren and as long as they en­joy them­selves that’s all that mat­ters.
