Kirk Hallam Community Academy celebrates its 50th birthday with community Summer Fair

Big Kirk Hallam’s Summer Fair was held at Kirk Hallam Community Academy last weekend, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Kirk Hallam school.
The local community and families were undeterred by the changeable weather and enjoyed activities both indoors and out, including hula hoop workshops, performances by circus skills and stilt walkers, as well as craft and creative activities. Exhibitions were enjoyed by all, particularly the display of classic cars and emergency service vehicles. Attendees were treated to music by local band Pigeon Pie throughout the day, and the musical attractions ended in style with a touching performance by the Dementia Choir.
Big Kirk Hallam is a scheme which intends to spend £1 million pounds over ten years on community projects and is paid for with lottery money. Their vision is to help make Kirk Hallam an even better place to live through fostering community spirit and increasing companionship, improving the opportunities available and the environment of Kirk Hallam.
Kirk Hallam Community Academy Headteacher Mr Chris Turner stated that ‘we are thankful to the organisation Big Kirk Hallam for all their efforts that went in to organising this event to mark an important milestone in the history of Kirk Hallam Community Academy. Our links with the community are so important to us and we have been so proud to welcome local residents and families to our school during the course of this year.’
