A children’s wonderland of Fairy Dens, Jumping Castles and train rides – last Saturday’s St Philomena’s Fair provided a heavenly recipe for fun.
And with Spring conditions perfect, the community took full stock of the opportunity for a family day out.
Spring Fair organiser Bec Quilty said the committee was thrilled with the result of this year’s St Philomenas Spring Fair, and the generosity of the community in its support.
“It was a wonderful day for both young ones and adults alike and we had so many generous volunteers, without whom the day would not have been the success it was – we are very grateful.”
Food aplenty – from home made pizzas, steak sandwiches, ice cones and fairy floss – catered for every tastebud, although the highly coveted “Mexican Stand’ proved this year’s favourite, selling out before the day’s end.
Likewise, the garden stall sold out of the majority of stock in 20 minutes.
“It certainly paid to get to the fair early,” Mrs Quilty laughed, “but there was still plenty on offer throughout the afternoon.”
Ambulance, Fire Fighter, Police and Army demonstrations kept he crowds in awe, while scenic train rides and motorbike rides around the oval delighted the little ones.
“It was such a fantastic day with so much going on, it really is the highlight of the St Philomenas social calendar for young and old, and this year’s fair certainly did not disappoint,” Mrs Quilty said.
