A SUMMER fete featuring a baking competition, TV policeman and live music and dance will take place in Stourport later this month.

The event, on Saturday, June 28, from 1pm to 4pm, has been organised by the parent-teacher association (PTA) of Burlish Park Primary School and will raise money for a new school minibus.

It takes place on the fields and car park of Stourport Sixth Form Centre, in Coniston Crescent.

Fyonna Muckian, chairman of the PTA, which is also known at the Burlish Fundraising Group, said: “It is going to be a fantastic fun day for all the community and, hopefully, it will raise lots of funds for our local school.”

Cake enthusiasts will be able to enter the Great Burlish Bake Off, which will award prizes for the best cake made by an adult and the best decorated cupcakes made by a child aged under 16 or under 11.

PC Angus Nairn, who features in Motorway Cops on BBC one, will be present with his police car, while Step By Step dance group and West Midlands Tae Kwon Do will perform live.

There will also be the chance for green-fingered visitors to enter pots, trays or baskets into the miniature garden competition, which will be judged by Paul Cook of Cook’s Garden Centre in Stourport, and rides, a disco and traditional fete stalls will provide further family entertainment Two pupils from Burlish Park Primary School will be running one of the stalls in support of the Forest Dog Rescue.

Ella Dew and Katie Flowers, both 10, aim to raise funds through a tombola and a guess the name of the dog competition.

The PTA will also run a raffle, with prizes dona-ted by local businesses including a seven-inch tablet computer, a Pandora bracelet and West Midland Safari Park tickets.

Mrs Muckian said a new minibus would help improve pupils’ learning and their enjoyment of school through educatio-nal trips, extra-curricular activities and sport.

The fete, open to the whole community, costs 50p to attend.
