Family Fun Day 2018

“It was the best day ever” – Ralph Y2

Friends of Holmewood

Last Saturday in the glorious sunshine “The Friends” held the Family Fun Festival on the South Lawn. Grandparents, parents, staff and children turned the corner of the mansion house to be greeted by Mega Blaster World’s biggest and best arena, chicken sumo suits, surfboard riding, gladiator jousting, assault courses and bouncy castles galore. The adults had a comfortable viewing area, in the shade of the trees, sipping Pimms and enjoying wood-fired pizza, home made salads and burgers, rounded off with ice cream, candy floss and sweets galore. Many thanks to the swing band who entertained us brilliantly and for the enthusiasm of the gymnasts in the hot weather. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, particularly from the children. A special thank you to all the parents who volunteered on the day, without whom it would not be possible to host this event. The Festival raised £4000 for the school and our charity Dandelion Time.
