Chocolates, cake and carrot help raise £1,500 for school

MORE than £1,500 was raised at Watlington Primary School’s second annual spring fair on Saturday.

MORE than £1,500 was raised at Watlington Primary School’s second annual spring fair on Saturday.

The money will go towards new musical instruments and tuition and library books.

Hundreds of people attended the fair, which featured face-painting, a chocolate and Easter egg tombola and a trail around the school for children to find photos of their teachers in fancy dress.

Other attractions included a

Star Wars-
themed shooting alley, a Lego building competition and a spin the wheel game with a booby prize of a carrot as well as a raffle and a tombola which sold out. Lucinda Shaw, chairwoman of the school’s parent teacher association, which organised the event, said: “I’m very pleased.



“The fair is a great event as it’s for everybody and very much includes the children and their families. We’re looking forward to next year’s event already. All the PTA fund-raising events are so important to the school. Last year we raised nearly £8,000.”

Mrs Shaw, whose nine-year-old daughter Isobel attends the school, thanked her fellow committee members and staff for their support.
