The Mowden Fete was held on one of the sunniest days in recent years and with such ideal weather, all the events planned for the afternoon were able to take place to the full across the school lawns on Saturday. New to the fete were the Year 6 outdoor mini-production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on the new outdoor stage by the gym, donated by the Wilkinson Family. It was performed twice during the afternoon with great confidence and humour. Also new to the fete were the Zorb balls, which were used to do football battle on the front lawn! Peter Robinson, an Old Boy of Mowden, brought along his rowing boat, in which he, Dickie Taylor and two other rowers are planning to row across the Atlantic early next year, as “The Four Oarsmen.” Many delicious food stalls and fun activities went on all afternoon.
