All the fun of the fair helps to celebrate school’s half cen­tury

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

HUN­DREDS at­tended Tyther­ing­ton School’s 50th an­niver­sary sum­mer fair.

The day fea­tured an ar­ray of tasty food and drinks as well as fun for all the fam­ily in­clud­ing a 60s tent, a rodeo sheep, welly throw­ing and a hu­man fruit ma­chine.

There was also a penalty shootout with Mac­cles­field Town FC’s Roary the Lion – won by Zak Eagland – and a Cutest Pet com­pe­ti­tion, won by Katie Nor­bury’s pug bea­gle Phyl­lis.

In sec­ond place was Zayn the ham­ster, with cats Chan­dra and Son­ali in third place.

Man­ag­ing to main­tain his bal­ance and scoop­ing the ti­tle of rodeo sheep win­ner was Dan Wright.

Guests tucked into burgers, hot­dogs, ice cream and cakes pro­vided by the Friends of Tyther­ing­ton par­ents’ group and the school’s stu­dents.

Nick Carter, chair of gover­nors, said: “The sum­mer fair was a great suc­cess.

“The va­ri­ety of stalls and ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer and the lovely weather made a win­ning com­bi­na­tion and the many mem­bers of staff, stu­dents, their fam­i­lies and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who at­tended all en­joyed them­selves.

“A big thank you goes to the Friends of Tyther­ing­ton School and ev­ery­one else who helped or­gan­ise the fair as part of the school’s 50th year cel­e­bra­tions.”

Julie Thorp, one of the fair’s stall­hold­ers, said: “The fair was great, bril­liantly or­gan­ised and very well at­tended.

“We had many, many chil­dren at the burger van, some had to wait while food was cooked, and not one of them moaned or used any bad lan­guage.

“They were all very po­lite and well man­nered – a credit to your school”.

Both cur­rent and fu­ture pupils of the school at­tended the cel­e­bra­tions.
