Along with the live music that accompanied the afternoon, stalls ranged from crafts to cake and from toys to textiles.
Handmade jewellery was up for sale along with plants and refreshments, and the fire service was on hand offering useful advice. There was even magic on show and aerial photography for sale at the event.
There was a competition amongst the students to sell the most raffle tickets for the draw, which closed the afternoon. After totting up, Jonathan Kitto won himself £100 for topping the leader board of ticket sales.
Winning the raffle was Mrs C Carabot who was rewarded with £100, with £50 going to Mrs V Whitehouse in second place.
Mrs M Price won a family swim pass at the Falmouth Hotel and Spa and two Merlin Cinema passes went to Ms J Platt. Mrs P Welsh will receive Sunday lunch for two courtesy of the Mounts Bay in Mullion while a family swim pass at the Polurrian Bay Hotel went to Ms L Matthews.
A car cleaning kit went to Ms J Cain, with the offer from Roland Lowery of a fish and chip supper for two from Roland’s Happy Plaice was won by Mrs H Matthews.
Parents and visitors praised the high quality of the range of acts in the talent show. First place was voted by the public as The Brittleshins, who were rewarded with a £50 cash prize, while second place was taken by Josie Lovekin and third by Rebekka Sharp and the Pound Notes, who also received |cash prizes.
Visitors all commented on the lovely atmosphere of the afternoon and the school said it was thankful to all stallholders, demonstrators and all those who helped with the preparation of the day.
They also thanked Roskilly’s for supplying the ice cream for the event and Penrose Judo Club for running demonstrations and giving youngsters the opportunity to join in.
Although money is still coming in the Mullion School Association has so far made more than £2,000 for the event.
