Fun at the FIGS Autumn Fair

Saturday, 23 September saw the return of a firm favourite in the Invicta calendar: The FIGS Autumn Fair. Organised and run by parents, staff and a contribution of stalls from students, this was a fantastic opportunity to enjoy and afternoon of fun and games, meet new friends, try new challenges and make some money.

The afternoon “kicked off” at 12:30pm in a blaze of glorious sunshine. Students, who had set up their stall in advance, began selling treats and setting competitions to the eager punters as they arrived. The Year 9 House Band, courtesy of Mr Heaton, were there to start the day with some fabulous renditions of well-known songs to get everybody in the festival spirit. Not only did they choose their songs well, but played very professionally and sounded great. Many a person was left singing the tune to ‘Valerie’ as they walked past.

Among the stalls on offer this year were the ever popular inflatable assault course, welly wanging and crockery smash! Students also ran a highly popular Pillow Fight competition along with popcorn and candy floss, glitter tattoos, hook a duck, the lollypop game and the balance game – which consisted of balancing three poker chips on top of an orange floating in a bowl of water. Not as easy as it sounds.

We were also joined by the farmers and animals from Valley Park’s Young Farmers club who brought along rabbits, a goat, ducks and alpacas for our visitors to meet and as you can imagine, were very popular all day.

This year saw a new addition to the stalls which was ‘Buskers Corner’ an area where anyone aged 8-18 could bring along an instrument, or their band, and perform for the eagerly awaiting crowds. Courtesy of Clive, a parent and local owner of the Make Some Noise recording studio, we were able to offer a prize of 3 hours free recording time for the performers in the Buskers Corner. All they had to do was perform to get automatically entered into the draw. At 3:30pm that afternoon, Mrs Derrick very kindly drew the winning ticket and the prize was awarded to Lila Deverson in 9I. She now has the unenviable task of picking 3 other musicians to join her to make the most of this wonderful prize.

All in all, the Fair raised over £1000 which will be put back into the school in one way or another over the academic year. Last year, FIGS contributions helped towards the completion of non-curriculum projects around the school, such as the decking, outdoor games, canopies and sunshades for the Izatt plaza, among many others. The stalls which raised the most money were 8S with Glitter Tattoos, an astonishing £138; 8V who ensured everybody had a constant supply of Popcorn and candy floss with £95; and 9C who ran the Pillow Fight competition and raised over £70.

We are eternally grateful to all those parents and staff who gave their time to make the Fair such a fabulous success. We are indebted to Mr Heaton for his organisation of the House Bands and music area. Thanks must also go to all the new members of the FIGS committee who have joined this year and brought with them their enthusiasm and ideas. A big thank you too, to Gemma from the Valley Park Farm for making the arrangements for the animals to join us. But most of all, the thanks must go to all the students who gave up a Saturday to make the fair such a great event and to think of ideas which would raise money. Lastly, a thank you to Mrs Stafford, who assured me that she had made arrangements for good weather for the day – she was true to her word.
