Fair to say it's fun at Cudgen
THE fairy floss is about to be spun, the jumping castles are on their way and the homemade cakes are baking in the oven.
Now all that remains is for Tweed residents to pop along to the Cudgen Primary School's inaugural family fun day and village markets this Saturday.
The school, now in its 125th year, will expand its traditional fete this year to include rides and activities for the whole family.
Tanya Erezuma is just one of the dedicated parents working with the P&C and school to organise the event.
Mrs Erezuma said they hoped to involve the whole community in the day and to fill the void left by other schools not running fetes this year.
“We're one of the only local schools running a fete this year,” Mrs Erezuma explained.
“We're also going along with the trend of having the rides there for the kids.
“Then the kids can go and have fun, and mum and dad and nan and pop then can go and have a Devonshire tea.”
The event will run at the school from 9am to 1pm.
Features include fairground rides on the oval, show bags, face painting, chocolate wheel, raffle of a signed Titans jersey, fresh sushi and a Lions barbecue.
Village market highlights include stalls of local produce, plants, homemade cakes and sweets, second-hand goods, handmade arts and crafts, and a lucky dip bottle stall where everyone is a winner.
The Cudgen Rural Fire Brigade will also conduct demonstrations.
