Friends of Milton Abbey School Summer Fete

The Friends of Milton Abbey School Summer Fete is now in its fourth year and last Saturday, 24th June, once again the School community came together to raise money for Julia’s House as well as SKRUM, a children’s charity working in Swaziland providing life-saving education on HIV/AIDS.

It was a great morning with beagle racing, miniature steam train rides, bouncy castles, the School Farm petting area, live music from pupils and storytelling by drama pupils for our younger visitors.   In addition our hospitality pupils had been working hard with food writer and Telegraph columnist Rose Prince on an artisan food stall. Their hard work paid off and the stall proved a huge success with sourdough bread, locally sourced smoked trout and other delicious treats selling out quickly to appreciative punters.
