Headteacher splatting is a fete favourite for Berkhamsted
THE fun and games at Westfield First School’s summer fete included the all-time favourite splat-a-teacher competition.
Even headteacher Dolores Bennett stepped into the stocks for a good old sponge soaking during the event in Durrants Lane, Berkhamsted, on Saturday.
Archery, javelin and Olympic ring biscuits decorated by the children were other highlights of the event – which this year had an Olympic theme.
Parents Sharon Herdholt and Nell Sparks provided manicures for mummies and there was a plant sale – which “appreciated the hefty but brief downpour,” said mum Becky Plenderleith.
She said: “The hog roast BBQ was a sell out and everyone scoffed ice creams from Elsie’s van.
“The kids got soaked on the Splash Zone – where they squirted each other with super soakers.”
School lollipop lady Carol Buchorski and manager of Two Oaks Pony Sanctuary gave the children pony rides.
There was also a raffle with prizes including a visit to the set of BBC One show Call the Midwife, a course of swimming lessons with Olympic swimmer Karen Pickering and a year’s worth of beauty products from boots.
