Autumn fair rakes in the cash for playground

A primary school in Kimberley raised more than £1,000 at an autumn fair.

Hollywell Primary School hosted the event, which was packed with games and stalls, to earn money to improve the outdoor play area. There was a bouncy castle, games, tombolas, a barbecue, lucky dips, a treasure map, an art gallery and arts and crafts.

And as if that wasn’t enough, ‘Ride Wise’ were there with their fun bikes where kids could pedal with their hands instead of their feet, as well as guess the name of the teddy and guess the weight of the cake.

Teacher Nicola Photiou said: “It was a lovely afternoon. It went really well.”

The autumn fair will now be held every year.
