All the fun of the Fairies
Now in its third year, the Daisy and Jake annual Fairy festival at Vale Park, Wallasey, attracted families from across the region, with over 800 visitors throughout the day on Sunday 13 August. The event was in aid of Cash for Kids, a local charity spearheaded by Radio City and all proceeds will be donated to this great cause.
Organised by Daisy and Jake Day Nurseries and celebrating all things mythical and magical, the festival offered opportunities to participate in crafts, singing, dancing and of course, fairy cake tasting!
The main attraction was the annual fairy cake competition, with youngsters and their responsible adults cooking up a range of sweet treats to be judged in a grand bake off. Two very willing judges from Cash for Kids selected the winning cakes from a huge selection of entries with the victors winning a guided tour of the Radio City tower.
Staff from Daisy and Jake day Nurseries gave up their time for free, each designing their own stands and activities.
Daisy and Jake Day Nurseries Managing Director Lisa Collins said: “We have built up the festival year on year, adding more activities and attracting more families. Vale Park is a great location for the event, with its own fairy garden, and the families loved taking part in decorating fairy doors, making magic wands and playing traditional games like the tombola and raffle which included prizes donated by local businesses”.
Visitors came from far afield, with families from all over the Wirral, Liverpool and Cheshire, and even one family from Ireland. With activities for children from ages from 1 to 7 there was something for everyone.
Managing Director Lisa continued: “It was lovely to see families together and parents forming friendships. At our nurseries the parents don’t always have time to chat during drop off and pick up so it was a great opportunity to get to know each other and strengthen our Daisy and Jake community.”
