Fun in the sun at school fair

A GIANT slide, barbecue and mini-football were among the attractions at the Crazies Hill Primary School

A GIANT slide, barbecue and mini-football were among the attractions at the Crazies Hill Primary School summer fair on Saturday.

More than 80 people attended the event, which was organised by the school’s parents’ association.

There was face-painting, a stall selling second-hand toys and one where children could make their own keyrings.

There was also a fire engine and children took part in a treasure hunt around the school grounds. A tombola had prizes of bottles of wine donated by parents and chocolate for children and a raffle offered prizes including restaurant vouchers and show tickets.

Food and drink was served throughout the day.



Victoria Dunne, who chairs the association, said: “It was a really successful event. We were blessed with the weather, which made the whole day better. The turnout was pretty good — we had the families of children who are starting at the school in September as well as current pupils.

“We usually have a Christmas fair and a spring or summer fair. The Christmas one tends to be the biggest and raises more money while this one is a bit more relaxed and the children get to take part in more fun activities.”

The fair raised more than £1,200 which will go towards tablet computers, school trips and the Christmas panto.
