Elmsett School's fete turned out to be a successful event for all. The school won the football tournament, the weather was dry (for most of the time, we were able to give our treasurer some profit from our stall and the raffle prize winners were cheerfully surprised! James Hitchcock is looking forward to afternoon tea at Hintlesham Hall. Margaret Nelson will enjoy using the eco-friendly contents of her Buckle's Wood Bag. David Cross will use his binoculars to look for his lost golf balls. Liam Glennon will be able to use his wind up torch on the Moth Hunt in Buckle's Wood on the 31st May, with Tony Prichard as our guide.
This photo of our stall at the school's fayre was taken last year. Lots of people enjoying the sunshine, buying raffle tickets and Buckle's Wood bags! After weeks of sunshine and no rain, the prospect of heavy showers for this year's fete on Saturday, is not good. But we shall be there with our gazebo, hoping that the rain lands on Buckle's Wood and not on the meadow. There will be super prizes to be won in our raffle and lots of bargains on the nearby stall belonging to the school's recycling centre.
Yes, I know it's a Red Admiral butterfly, not a moth, but I'm hoping to take loads of photos on the 31st May, when Tony Prichard will be leading our moth hunt. The evening will start with refreshments at 8.45, and finish late! Tony is Suffolk's moth expert and is not charging us for this event. You will find lots information about and photos of moths on his website. Numbers will be limited, so if you would like to join in with the fun send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
