Saturday 13th July was a glorious day for everyone in Crewe, with dozens of people visiting the First Friends Pre-School Summer Fair on Vincent Street.
There was plenty to do for everyone at the pre-school centre based on Vincent street which is soley run by a volunteer charity committee on what was possibly the hottest day of the year so far for the people of Crewe.
Doors were set to open at 12pm but from as early as 11am a queue of visitors had gathered in preparation for a fantastic afternoon, due to the blistering heat the doors were opened early.
No-one was disappointed with what greeted them.
There was a wide variety of stalls for everyone to browse around, such as: Tombola, Hook a duck, Facepainting, Pan for gold, Guess the dogs name and Homemade Cakes.
All items were kindly made or donated by local businesses, staff members, parents or family/friends.
Wayne Burrell, chairman of the committee said:
“A heartfelt thank you to all who braved the tropical conditions and came along to support us at our Summer Fair.
The day was a huge success and monies raised will help us to provide much needed outdoor equipment for the children.
During the hot afternoon Wayne could be found sizzling away over the BBQ along with the sausages and burgers which were kindly supplied by Grant Butchers of Crewe.
For a fabulous low price they were extremely tasty.
Wayne went on to say:
“We would like to thank the local businesses that very kindly donated some fantastic prizes to our raffle.
We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the local community and look forward to welcoming you all back next year”
There was a big crowd buzzing around one particular area.
Upon inspection it was many children queuing up to have their faces painted by the pre-school manager Jackie Tudor.
A Pirates face seemed to be a very popular choice by the children with lots of AAARRRRRHHH’s being called out afterwards.
There was a BIG SUPER RAFFLE taking place which went down very well with everyone, with dozens of amazing prizes up for grabs, all kindly donated by local businesses.
