For a fun day out for all the family plus the opportunity to help raise money for a good cause, pay a visit to Turnham Green on Saturday 18th June, from 11am until 4pm, for Southfield Primary School’s Sunflower Fete.

And is very proud to be one of the sponsors for this year's event. We are offering a donation to the school for every new person that registers on the website in the weeks leading up to the event. We will pay at least £50 to the school but please do register so we can increase this amount as we will add an extra £10.00 to the pot for every 20 new local registrations.

This year the theme for the children’s fancy dress parade which is always a highlight of the fete, is Favourite Book Characters. Come dressed as your favourite book character: from fairies, fairy tale princesses to supermen, spider-men and even Harry Potter - there are plenty of characters to choose from. There will be a prize for the best costume judged by a special guest.

From bouncy castles and a carousel to face painting and fine food there’s something to amuse all ages. Little ones will enjoy showing off their artistic talent in Craft Corner or trying their hand at traditional games such as hook-a-duck and panning for gold while older children will love the giant slide and old favourites such as the coconut shy.

If you’re looking to bag a bargain, pay a visit to a variety of stalls selling everything from second hand books to plants, flowers and bric-a-brac. However, if all that bargain hunting makes you thirsty you can head for the tea tent or the Pimms tent for some refreshment where you can watch the world go by, to the sound of the jazz quartet.

You can also indulge your taste buds at our BBQ or try a selection of an eclectic mix of food from around the world, courtesy of the culinary skills of the school’s parents.

This year the event will be raising money for playground refurbishment - including a sensory garden, art projects, theatre visits and music activities. It is hoped that this year’s profits may even raise in excess of £10,000, generated by last year’s event.

Mr Simon Prebble, Head teacher at Southfield Primary School says, “The Sunflower Fete is a much anticipated date on the school calendar. It’s a day when the whole school as well as the wider community can join together to help raise money for various school projects. First and foremost it is a lot of fun, it’s a great family day out and there is something for everyone”.
