The 6th form students who have organised the Summer fair

King Ethelbert School in Birchington is holding a Summer fair on June 29 to raise money to redevelop the student sixth form centre and to support the Alzheimer’s Society.

The event has been organised by sixth form business students and is the first of its kind at the school.

It will be a family friendly day of fun and games and will include a 75ft inflatable assault course for all ages, live dance and music performances, penalty shootout and other traditional fair games, pony cycle for younger children, a local business market selling a variety of items and a burger van and candyfloss machine.

The students have been meticulous in organising the event and have spent months piecing together the variety of fantastic stalls and activities for the day.

A student spokesperson said: “We have ensured there are different activities on offer to entertain the whole family and want to create an event which is popular within the local community in the hope that it can become an annual event.

“This event has been organised in order to serve the local area and aims to provide everyone with the opportunity to join in a day of community get together. As such, the event offers free entry for both adults and children alike.”

Access for the event is via the lower entrance of the school, with parking available in the lower car park as well as along the main road- stewards will be available to offer directions.

The event is on Saturday, June 29 from noon to 4pm at King Ethelbert School.
