FRIENDS and families recently came together for a much–loved school summer fair in Cam which was bigger and better than before. 

The event - known as Everfest - was organised by parent volunteers and staff from Cam Everlands Primary in the school grounds on Friday, June 7.

The evening included a tombola, a barbeque, bouncy castles, face-painting, a water fight, obstacle courses and raised around £2,000 for the primary.

The event also included brownies from SRG catering, ice creams from a local Mr Whippy van plus games organised by Atlas Camps.

There was also a visit from the Severn Area Rescue Association with a lifeboat as well as vehicles from Gloucestershire Police and South Western Ambulance Service.

Pupils were also allowed to throw sponges at their headteacher Dominic Knill.

Jennie O’Reilly, chair of the school association, said: “Our aim was to create an event that would bring the children, their families, friends and the wider school community together.  

“We wanted to create a night of affordable fun and enjoyment for everyone – and thanks to a brilliant team effort I think we achieved that!  

“Our huge thanks must go to everyone who played a part in making Everfest 2024 such a brilliant success, and especially to our sponsors – St Modwen Homes and Vistry for their generous support.” 

Headteacher Dominic Knill said:  “We can’t thank our school community enough.  

“Through the generosity of local businesses and the families and friends of our pupils, Everfest will once again enable some great new projects at Cam Everlands. 

“Most importantly though, the children loved it - the school field was buzzing with energy, and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves – including those families with children joining us in September.  

“What a lovely way to mark the start of our summer term!”
