Liana and family help in our fundraising activities
Why do we have a picture of the Queen and Liana? Read the section below written by Liana’s mum. What she doesn’t tell you is that the family raised £120 for our sports hall appeal. Well done guys and thank you so much for your efforts. Raising money for the appeal can be fun and you can get to know all sorts of new people too!
“We always take the opportunity to party in our street…normally on our front driveway, and the Queen’s 90th was a great excuse!!
We had between 60 to 80 guests from newborns to in their 90s attending throughout the day!
We prepared for the worst weather by erecting gazebos, tents and parasols everywhere…only to be blessed with warmth and sunshine, which made all the difference.
We had the raffle and lucky dip running all day. The raffle was made up of many donations from the neighbours themselves too. It was a great attraction and enjoyment especially for the children who loved it and couldn’t keep away! We had 90 lucky dip prizes which went within a couple of hours! Sawdust everywhere – but great fun!
Throughout the day we had various games…the children from the street running most of them, with a ‘tented salon’ for hair, make-up and nail polishing, face painting, a piñata, ball games, and live music from the talented young people in the street. Also an all-aged footy match on the green behind the houses which was excellent fun…and very competitive!!
All in all, it was a fabulous day where we met many of the new neighbours to the street and got to know lots of our neighbours much better.”
The school salutes the efforts of this fabulous family and now we challenge YOU other families of Westhaven: Can you keep up with the Joneses?
