Morton Primary School summer fair draws a crowd

A SUMMER fair at Morton Primary School proved to be a big hit on Saturday.

The event organised by the school’s parent and teacher association included a mix of stalls and games, many of which were manned by pupils.

One of the attractions most popular with the visiting parents and adults was a game where a bottle of whisky was up for grabs.

A raffle and tombola was also held for a range of prizes donated by local businesses.

Headteacher George Trafford said: “It was a very successful day which raised a considerable amount of money for the school.

“The day was well attended by members of the community.

Mr Trafford said events like these were important for the school, because it allowed it to interact with the community and benefit from the money raised.

Morton Primary School is currently using money raised by the PTA to buy books.
