A STOURBRIDGE school will be showing the men’s Wimbledon final on the big screen and serving up Pimm’s, prosecco and barbecue food at its fundraising summer fair this Sunday (July 16).

Oldswinford C of E Primary School is holding its annual end of summer term funday from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, with money raised set to go towards its forest school programme.

As well as being able to watch the Wimbledon final and enjoy a barbecue, visitors will be able to ‘soak a teacher’, browse craft stalls, and enjoy traditional games and refreshments including local beer, Pimm’s, prosecco, tea, coffee and cakes.

There’ll also be forest school and bush craft adventures, sports challenges, a bouncy castle and mega inflatable slide.

The school is inviting the wider community to pop along and find out more about Oldswinford C of E Primary and what is on offer for pupils as, due to a low birth rate, places remain available for the forthcoming school year.

School bosses are hoping for a big turnout – despite the recent gloomy weather – in the hope of raising much-needed funds to help keep its forest school programme going amid a backdrop of school budget cuts and the cost of living crisis.

Headteacher Ellie Game said: “This year, more than ever, we are looking forward to this event to create memories for current pupils and their families; to showcase our talented students through live performances; to welcome back past pupils; and to put our community values into practice by supporting local small businesses and charities.

“Like many other local schools, due to an unprecedented low birth rate, we still have places available for September 2023. We hope the fair will give families who are considering our school for their children, the chance to see what we’re all about.”

“And, of course, we hope to raise much-needed funds for our forest school programme which plays such an important part in the holistic education and experiences that we offer our pupils.”
