Lewisham College partnered with Brockley Society for their 47th annual Hilly Fields Midsummer Fayre. The event was a successful afternoon of outdoor entertainment for the residents of Brockley and beyond.
With Arts, Crafts, Bric-a-brac Stalls, Music and Dance performances, a mini music stage, Open Mic, Spoken Literary workshops, a Dog Show, Farm Animals, a Land Train, children’s rides, coconut shy, Tug o’War, World foods and a barbeque! Not to mention a wonderful tea tent with homemade cakes, as well as a cake decorating competition, art completions and a vegetable modelling competition.
This event was a good opportunity for Lewisham College to continue building on its relationship with people in the community as well as local businesses. Teachers of vocational courses at Lewisham College put up two stalls to highlight a few of the exciting courses that the College has to offer, where visitors could make their own Vietnamese Summer Rolls and help to create a Hilly Fileds tile mosaic.
Jayne Morgan, Vice Principal at Lewisham College, said: “We are delighted to have been part of the Hilly Fields Midsummer Fayre. It was great to see our teaching team participating in the fayre activities and having the opportunity to speak to Lewisham locals about our course provision and partnerships with local businesses designed to support young people and adults achieve their career goals, as well as get them involved in our interactive creation of the Hilly Fields mosaic as well as the Vietnamese summer rolls preparation.
“Working with our local community is crucial to everything we do at Lewisham College. We are incredibly proud to be working in partnership with the Brockley Society to engage with the people of Brockley and Lewisham. Our combined work continues to serve as a positive force for change.”
The Brockley Society has now been working on behalf of the people who live in the Brockley Conservation Area and the surrounding areas for more than 45 years. The Midsummer Fayre on Hilly Fields is one of the largest annual events in the park and raises most of the funds that the society uses on projects to continue supporting the community.
