Families enjoyed a fun-filled day at a school's summer fair.

Fairground rides and inflatables, an ice cream van and a Korean martial arts performance were among the many attractions at Deeping St James Community Primary School's annual fair.

Several companies and volunteers contributed to the summer fair, including housebuilder Vistry Group which donated £100 for the top raffle prize.

Becky Barrett, chairperson of the school’s parent-teacher association, said: “It was a such a memorable day for everyone who attended the summer fair, and it was great to see that we have made a good impression on new starters.

“We knew we wanted to host a big summer raffle, so we reached out to local companies for support and the response has been delightful. We would like to say a big thank you to the businesses that contributed to the event."

It is the third time Vistry has supported the school, having previously donated £100 to the school’s Christmas raffle and contributed £500 towards the installation of a defibrillator.

Vistry is currently working on the Springfields housing development which is being built off Linchfield Road in Deeping St James.

Weronika Maslak, sales manager, said: “We have established an extremely strong relationship with Deeping St James Community Primary School during the time we have been building in the village.

"The school plays an active role in bringing the local community together and the summer fair was just the latest example of this.
