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