Youngsters entertained grandparents with a day of festivities including a street party and a chance to wear homemade red, white and blue hats.
After the grandparents had been royally entertained at a ‘street party’ on the lawn outside the New Courtyard Hall, pupils and relatives from Farlington School at Horsham enjoyed the PTA Summer Fair organised in conjunction with Cranleigh Golf and Country Club. Inflatables, sumo wrestling and garden games were enjoyed in the summer sunshine.
Farlington Prep Headmistress Frances Mwale, said: “We have been asking the children what it means to be British. Answers range from thoughts of British foods such as tea, jam on toast, roast beef and cabbage, to Wimbledon, fairness and safety, speaking English and being an island nation. Naturally, featured in most of the girls’ musings were the Queen and the Royal Family.
“The Queen is our longest reigning monarch. At the ripe old age of 90 she still works a 40-hour week; she has advised 12 British Prime Ministers and heads up the Church of England. What a great role model to have.”
Nicholas Hughes, General Manager, at Cranleigh Golf and Country Club said “We were delighted to be invited to support the PTA Summer Fair at Farlington School. It was lovely to see so many local residents in attendance with their children. One lucky Farlington parent walked away with a free year’s worth of membership at the club.” Pictured are scenes from the event.
