The fun and laughter at a school fair helped raise thousands of pounds to develop the playground area.

The summer fair at Bourne Abbey Primary Academy on Saturday raised more than £2,000.

The event organised at the school by the parents, teacher and friends association included many attractions, ranging from performances by the school choir and orchestra, fairground rides, circus skills, inflatable assault course, a penalty shot out competition, face painting and lots more. The event also included the finals of Bourne Abbey’s Got Talent competition where 15 pupils in six different acts fought it out for first prize, which was won by Year 6 pupil Rebecca Fry for playing the flute.

Business manager and member of the parent, teacher association, Jill Bates, said: “The children all love the talent competition and always want to take part in it.

“The whole day went really well. We were busy the whole time and had a lot of people through the gates.”

“Thank you to all the people who supported the day in some way, especially the businesses who donated things and the parents for coming along and spending their money.”

The parent, teacher, association also raised more than £700 at Bourne Festival where volunteers manned the hog roast stall.
