A Monmouth primary school celebrated the platinum jubilee in royal style with a spectacular summer fete organised by its Parent, Teacher and Friends Association, (PTFA).

Last Friday (June 10) pupils, parents and carers at Overmonnow Primary School were treated to afterschool festivities packed with fun, games and fair-ground food.

Activities included spin the wheel, tombola, beat the goalie and throw a pie, which saw deputy head Mr Davies and Year 6 teacher Mr Ravetta gamely volunteer for the stocks.

A bouncy castle, face-painting and creepy crawly encounters also added to the fun.

Parents, teachers and PTFA members ran stalls including popular cocktails and scones stands.

Children were also able to explore a fire engine, kit and uniforms, thanks to Monmouth Fire Station.

A raffle was held too; prizes were generously donated by local businesses, including Oxford Coffee Company, Classic of Chepstow, JP Technical Services, Quench, Cuppy’s Cwtch, Top Stak, Jarrold’s Tyres and United Trades.

PTFA secretary Claire Lewis and treasurer Megan Kennedy managed the fete with a team of parent helpers.

“It was a really special day and so well supported by the school community,” said PTFA chair, Kelly Thomas-Horton.

“Our PTFA team worked hard to make the event happen, so it was a joy to see pupils and their families enjoy a such a lovely jubilee celebration in their own school.”

The fete was partly funded by Monmouth Town Council and Monmouth Housing Association.
