Camp-Over 2017: a really enjoyable day and night
We hope that everyone had a great time at Farfield Camp-Over 2017. We were lucky with the weather yet again and everything seemed to go to plan: the White Rose Cheerleaders and juggler Matthew Tiffany entertained us and the Obstacle Course was a big hit with competitive families. As usual, the water fight went on for hours whilst the gazeebo with nails and face painting, glitter tattoos and ‘hairdos’ was very busy for a couple of hours. Mrs James and Mrs Galbraith had our younger children singing and listening to stories around a small campfire and lots of slightly older children were making dens. Chickens were fed and eggs were collected. There was a constant stream of people playing cricket and tennis, whilst the appearance of the tug of war rope led to much huffing and puffing (and plenty of laughter). After a delicious dinner (thanks Claire and Trish), musical duo Sebastopher entertained us handsomely for a couple of hours, and had some people dancing, before we all went up to the fire and many a marshmallow was roasted (and burned).
After a reasonably quiet night, a fantastic breakfast was served in the infants thanks to a brilliant group of early-morning volunteers led by Claire in the kitchen. The sun was shining and the site was cleared by lunchtime (many hands make lighter work!).
Many, many thanks to everyone that supported the Camp-Over, especially our brilliant PTA and volunteers led by Diane Walton. Once again, they did a magnificent job: well done!
