Crosspool 2022 Summer Fayre

After the pandemic restrictions  were lifted, we all very much welcomed  getting back to some form of normality, so it was a delight to see our wonderful community come together once again to have lots of fun and enjoy the first Crosspool Summer Fayre since July 2019

A couple of the many children who welcomed Eddie to the Summer Fayre

There’s not a child in Crosspool who hasn’t said ‘Good morning’ to Lydgate Infants School crossing patrol legend Eddy Parton. Every school day up to his last patrol on April 1st, 2021, Eddie, with his reassuring smile, would be on patrol to carefully help children to cross Lydgate Lane safely.
In recognition and appreciation of keeping children safe, Eddie was invited to officially open this year’s Crosspool Summer Fayre on Saturday, July 2nd.

Blessed with good weather, everything from the Bric-a-Brac, Craft, Book, and delicious Food and Drink stalls, to a wide range of fun activities, games, and competitions designed for families to have lots of fun, a superb bouncy castle/slide for the children, and the Holly Hagg Alpacas were kept very busy throughout the afternoon. So much so, that despite the usual indoor entertainment being somewhat curtailed, due to the present spike in Covid, the day was a huge success for the community.

Thank you to the many people and businesses, who donated prizes, bought raffle tickets, donated prizes, and came and supported us on the day.  We would also like to thank the many residents, their families, and friends who helped on stalls and who attended or volunteered at this year’s Summer Fayre.  A fantastic achievement for all involved, especially Steve and Ian who worked incredibly hard coordinating all aspects of the day to ensure that the event was a great success.
