Stars of CBBC ‘Sam & Mark’ will be opening Southfield Primary School’s Sunflower Fete on Saturday 22nd May 2010.

The popular presenting duo, who are well known for shows such as Tmi, Copycats, Who Wants to be a Superhero and Sam & Mark’s Guide to Dodging Disaster will be officially opening the fete on Turnham Green at 11am.

This year, the theme for the children’s fancy dress parade, which is always a highlight of the fete, is World Cup: Football, Flags and Fashion.

So if you’re a budding Beckham, a wannabe Wayne Rooney, or are simply proud of your amazing national dress, come dressed in a football strip, a flag, or a national costume for your country. There will be a prize for the best costume, judged by celebrity guests Sam & Mark.

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, a bungee run 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 tastebuds with a selection of an eclectic mix of food from around the world – all courtesy of the culinary genius of the school’s parents. This year the event will be raising money for audio visual and lighting equipment for school performances, plus more computers for all the pupils to enjoy.

It is hoped that this year’s profits may even raise in excess of £10,000, generated by last year’s event.

Mr Adil Sutaria, acting head teacher at Southfield Primary School said, “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. Paramount to the fete’s success is that it is a lot of fun, it’s a great family day out and there is something for everyone. This year, we are particularly delighted to be welcoming Sam & Mark, and hope their presence at the fete will create a lot of interest in the event and ultimately boost the amount of money we raise.”
