THE sun blazed down for pupils, families and friends at Victoria Infant School’s Spring Fair on Saturday (May 22).
The hot weather meant about half of the 20 or so games and stalls could be held out of doors.Š
The wet sponge game proved particularly popular with the youngsters – and for once the brave teachers volunteering for a drenching didn’t mind the cold water.
Fortunately the Sure Start children’s centre on the school site had thoughtfully donated sunhats for the children, which came in very useful for many.
Other activities included beat the goalie, panning for gold, a lucky dip, hoop-la, biscuit decorating and the ever-popular tombola.
Toddlers were catered for with ride on toys and colouring, while ‘play your cards right’ was popular with older children and adults alike.
Parents excelled themselves with donations for the cake stall, which was groaning under the weight of tasty goodies, while an entire classroom was filled with the great-value toy stall.
The grand finale of the fair was the raffle draw, with dozens of prizes donated by local businesses and well-wishers.
The day raised more than £1,500 and the school would like to thank everyone who supported the event, either by donations or by attending on the day.
