Excitement is building ahead of one of the most prominent fundraising dates on the Rydal Penrhos calendar this week.
The Friends of Rydal Penrhos committee will once again be holding their annual Summer Fair on the Memorial Quad from 3.30-6.30pm on Friday, June 22.

In addition to the usual prizes and stalls, there will be a special inflatable course and a Mini Beast Safari to those in attendance to enjoy, and a police riot van will also be on hand for a special exhibition at the event.
There will be plenty of games to enjoy including a Tombola, Water or Wine, Splat the Rat, Spin the Wheel, Hay Bale, Jolly Jars, a Cuddly Tombola and many more.
A special Bake Off competition on the Fair’s theme will showcase entries from Rydal Penrhos’ Prep and Senior sites, and there will be a wealth of live entertainment in the form of the Battle of the Bands competition, plus contributions from the Community Choir and Jazz Band.
The popular barbecue also making an appearance, with other refreshments available throughout the Fair, and a large number of fantastic prizes are up for grabs in the annual Raffle.
Proceeds from the event will go towards FORPS projects throughout the school, and the committee will also be giving a donation to Young Minds, a charity devoted to emotional well-being and mental health of children.
