An Event ~ Bigger Than Ben Hur
The St Columba's Primary Great Fete is a party not to be missed. Two years of preparation and planning, countless hours of volunteer work by parents working in small groups and stepping up for designated positions, as well as generous support from local businesses have set the scene for a hugely successful day. As stated by fete coordinator Desley Rostron , "The response to requests for help, be it foot soldiers, raffle ticket sellers, stall holders or steering committee members of the fete has been overwhelming."
Deliciously fresh homemade cakes, biscuits and slices, made with love in our family kitchens, will be on for sale .Come early so you are not disappointed, this is one of the traditional favourite stalls and sells out quickly.
St Columba's own Condiment Queen – Formerly know as Marjorie's Country Kitchen will be there again this year, with her Pear, Ginger and Chocolate Conserve , just one of the delectable flavours that ensure Marjorie's conserves, jams and relishes disappear quickly at every fete. This year there is new Christmas craft stall with decorations, and an amazing chalkboard wreath and sensational advent calendar.
