Cavendish School Fair Banner Slashed
Mindless vandalism mars School's Summer Fair
Parents, staff and friends of Cavendish Primary School in Chiswick were dismayed when their large red banner announcing the annual Cavendish Summer Fair was slashed to pieces with a knife last Friday night.
The banner had been attached to the school railings facing the A316, during the run-up to the Fair which took place on Sunday. Parents attempted to patch together the banner, but it was damaged beyond repair.
sign had originally been bought with hard-earned PTA funds, and has been
used for several years to advertise the school's regular Summer and Christmas
Despite the attack the fair itself was a great success. One parent told us, "it was the best ever as far as current parents know as we raised over £3,900. We will be using some of the money for computer leasing. "
