With great excitement we are planning another fabulous Country Fete in honour of West Melton School. The school has been going through a large transition phase in the last five years where it has doubled its student roll and added many new teachers and classrooms to the mix. As the heart of the local community the school has done a fantastic job handling this change and providing a wonderful place for children to learn and grow. We are again raising funds to enhanmce the outdoor learning enviroments for our children. Our last Fete was a huge success and allowed us to purchse a new playground which will be installed mid 2018.


The fete will be held on Sunday, 31 March 2019, from 10am to 3pm at West Melton School, 743 Weedons Ross Rd, the aim is to raise funds for new play areas and outdoor spaces. Entry will be a GOLD COIN donation.


The fete will include all your typical country fair attractions:

  • great food, drinks & baking
  • stalls offering everything you can imagine
  • crazy games and challenges for all ages
  • great offerings & displays from local businesses
  • a range of fantastic local Canterbury entertainment


  • The Fete is being spearheaded by a subcommittee of the Friends of West Melton School (formally the PTA). This volunteer committee has been charged with the event creation, fundraising, communications and implementation of the fete.
