Snow princess Elsa appears at summer fete

A SUMMER fete held at Turville Nursery raised £1,020 for the British Heart Foundation.

A SUMMER fete held at Turville Nursery raised £1,020 for the British Heart Foundation.

Hundreds of people attended the event, which was organised by manager Becky Wrangles after her father Mike suffered a heart attack earlier this year.

The 58-year-old, who was working in London at the time, had an emergency stent fitted at Hammersmith Hospital and is now recovering with help from the charity.

Miss Wrangles, who lives with her father and mother Alison in Holyrood Close, Caversham Park, said: “The support my dad has received from the British Heart Foundation has been incredible. He has received everything from check-ups to advice.

“It’s important to get the message out there for people to look after their hearts because it’s something many people neglect.”



She said the fete was a huge success and she was shocked at the size of the attendance.

Children were entertained by the “Snow Princess”, a professional lookalike of Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, while deputy manager Sophie Graham dressed as the snowman character Olaf.

There was also balloon modelling, two bouncy castles, a model train stand, a cake stall, a tombola, a raffle and forest school sessions where youngsters learned to climb trees. Parents ran a barbecue while the village’s Bull and Butcher pub ran a bar.

Miss Wrangles hopes the fete will become an annual event with a smaller event at Christmas.
