Mayfield Garden Party

The Garden Party was a lovely event on Saturday 4th July. We were blessed with lovely weather and everyone had a great time. It was a well – supported event, not least by a good showing of past pupils , including Nicky Berriman who had flown into Manchester airport that morning all the way from New Zealand , and joined by her parents all the way from Scotland, to visit Mayfield once again. They enjoyed a fabulous day , reliving old memories. Nicky remarked that Mayfield had not changed but how small the school seemed now! Nicky is a delightful young lady and has enjoyed great success since leaving Mayfield, going onto Queen Mary ‘s High School and settling in New Zealand. It was a pleasure to meet Nicky and her family. They also caught up with her godparents , Mr and Mrs Les Thacker.

Finally, I would like to thank all the hardworking parents for helping at the Garden party and raising valuable funds for the school. I would also like to thank those children who pelted sponges at the Headmaster in the stocks. It really cooled me down , but be warned , I’ve got my eye on you!
