Leigh School is re-branding its annual school fair and changing the date.
Instead of Easter, next year’s fair will be held on Saturday, February 3 and it will be called the Leigh School Summer Festival.
Event organiser Caroline Haggitt says the emphasis will be on the festival side of things.
“We will have lots of stalls and a much wider range of entertainment including DJs, solo artists and groups,” Caroline says.
Members of the public are being invited to take a stall for $25.
“In the past, setting up the market section has put a lot of pressure on parents so we’ve decided to let anyone who’s keen to run their own stall
have a go.”
Caroline says there will also be an emphasis on expanding the range of food available, with a new taco stall being one of the first new additions to sign on. Other entertainment on the day will include the ice slide, bouncy castles and a display from the Warkworth/Wellsford Classic Car Club. The popular quick-fire fish raffles, supported by Leigh Fisheries, will also be run.
The school hopes to raise $15,000, which will go towards school projects.
