Saturday 14th June, 2010 saw the dawning of a sunny and beautiful day and a very busy one for the members of the HCPT Groups taking part.
The annual Fete was held in lovely and leafy Victoria Park, with the sun shining brightly and plenty of things to do and see. Marquees, tents and stalls held a plethora of food, drinks, cakes, activities, games, books, a White Elephant stall, a Bouncy Castle, Home Made Cards and the Face Painting proved a great hit with the queues going on and on!
  The Whitchurch Branch of the Cardiff Fire Service made a welcome visit and had children crawling all over
  their Fire Engine.

  Catholic Schools from all over the Diocese competed for the HCPT
  (Cardiff) Catholic Interschool’s Football
  Trophy, and were fully supported by admiring
  parents, teachers and coaches.

  This year for the first time girls’ teams played and
  did a fantastic job, really showing off their skills and
  prowess. Well done girls, let’s hope that this becomes an annual fixture.

 The Annual HCPT Fete and the Interschool’s Football Competition have been established for 32 years. This year 11 boys teams played for the HCPT Cup and the Catenian Cup which was introduced in 2008. This year for the first time they were joined by 9 girls teams playing for the St. Bernadette’s Cup and the HCPT Shield. The St. Bernadette Cup was kindly sponsored by Mr. Tony Bibey and we would like to thank Tony sincerely for all his help and support over many years.

  Well, what a hugely successful tournament day it turned out to be. The games were brimming with
  skills worthy of the World Cup. The enthusiasm of the teams was overwhelming as the great sporting
  event was won by St. Mary’s who narrowly defeated St Joseph’s in the final of the boy’s matches.
  St. Mary’s boys were awarded the HCPT Cup and the runners up St. Joseph’s, the Catenian Cup.

  St Peter’s girls were awarded the St. Bernadette Cup and Holy
  Family Girls the HCPT Shield.

  Well done to all who took part.

A big thank you to Andy Wigmore and Chris Head of the Canton Rangers Football
Club for supporting and acting as linesmen and referees. Thanks also to Mr Roy
Jefferies, headteacher of St. Mary’s for organising the Football Tournament.
Roy takes over from Mr Peter Sullivan the retired headteacher of Christ the King
who hung up his boots last year after 31years as the Fete Football organiser.
A big thank-you to all those who helped in any way in the donating of goods and time and in the running of the day.

To all who came and supported the Fete thank you so much, we hope to see you all next year on Saturday 11th June 2011.
