Braving the Bad Weather

Whether the weather is hot sun or heavy rain, nothing seems to dampen the spirits of those involved with the annual Hethersett Junior School Spring Fair. 

This year’s event was held in persistent rain that drove some of the attractions inside. Nevertheless a full programme for all the family went ahead. The event was brought forward to help Norwich City fans attend before going on to Carrow Road for the final match of the season against Carlisle. 

As always the event was organised by the school PTA and Head Teacher Andy Whittle was quick to praise the group’s efforts: 

“Many changes have been made to the school grounds including additional fixed play equipment and astro turf areas which have been made possible by funds raised at events such as the Spring Fair. All the money raised by the PTA goes towards extras for the children which the school otherwise might not be able to provide. 

“Organising a running such an event is hard work and I would like to thank the PTA for all the effort they have put in over many months,” he said. 

As well as many of the usual stalls, attractions and refreshments the day also included a “Diversity” dance competition and an auction of promises and the school’s steel pans group who played in the school hall because of the rain outside.
