Warrington & Vale Royal College is revelling in the success of its highly anticipated Community Fun Day which attracted hundreds of visitors to its vibrant Warrington campus on Saturday 8th July.

The college spared no effort in organizing a spectacular event, which was sponsored by local company Equans and from which all proceeds are being donated to St Rocco’s Hospice, and they were joined by over twenty exhibitors from highly esteemed organisations such as the Royal Air Force, the Royal Navy, Cheshire Police, Cheshire Fire and Rescue, Kinaxia Logistics, Cheshire Mix 56, Costco and even an appearance from Princess Elsa!

Also adding to the festivity was Warrington Wolves’ lovable mascot Wolfie, who was a cheeky presence charming visitors and posing for photos. Amidst the excitement, guests enjoyed a range of edible treats including burgers, hot dogs, ice cream, cakes and a delightful afternoon tea in the college’s own Buckley’s Restaurant. Visitors also participated in a variety of stalls and games; such a diverse range of entertainment ensured there was something for everyone to enjoy.

A particular event highlight was the incredibly popular dog show. A parade of furry friends showcased their talent and the competition was fierce! After much deliberation, the coveted “Best in Show” was awarded to Nevis the Labrador Retriever, aged 11 from Middlewich, who outshone with his undeniable charm and skill. Nevis and his owner, Julie, were proud winners of a large hamper full of goodies, donated by local pet shop Jollyes. The judging panel, made up of college Principal and CEO Nichola Newton and Steph Davies from the RSPCA, along with the large crowd of spectators, were incredibly impressed with the displays of talent and very much look forward to welcoming the cheeky canines back to campus at next year’s competition.

Warrington & Vale Royal College would like to thank everybody who came along and made the event such a huge success. Keep your eyes peeled on the college’s social media channels and website for the announcement of next year’s date, for an event that promises to be even bigger and better.
