Dozens of youngsters and their parents enjoyed a Christmas fair at their village school on Saturday.

The parent, teacher and friends association at Ketton Primary School held the festive fair and there was lots of activities on offer.

There was a tombola, raffle and games including pin the tail on Rudolph, hoopla and Scalextric, as well as stalls and facepainting.

The children were even able to use their pocket money to buy a book or toy from the second hand stall and there were tasty mince pies and glasses of mulled wine to enjoy.

The playgroup based at the school also ran a Santa’s grotto, which was popular.

Alix Cunnell, one of six members of the association, said it was a fantastic success.

She said: “We had a really good raffle with some great prizes and the tombola, which had more than 100 prizes, was popular as well.

“Overall, it was a really good day and it was absolutely packed. I think everyone had a really good time.

“We raised over £1,000 which is a good result for a small village school.”

The money raised will go towards extra activities for the pupils in school.
