There was plenty of the Olympic spirit on show at Monkshouse Primary School’s summer fair.

Children, parents and staff prepared for the arrival of the Olympic Torch in Spalding by putting on a fun-packed day of activities linked to the once-in-a-lifetime event.

Paralympics shot put gold medallist Sally Reddin from Holbeach opened the event before children took part in Olympic-themed games, including table basketball and a mini javelin throw.

There was also a dance display, drumming and gift and refreshment stalls.

The event was organised by staff and the Friends of Monkshouse School which is raising money towards a new stage and lighting.

Sarah Asplin, chairman of the Friends of Monkshouse School, said: “Everyone thought it was a really good day, with a good atmosphere and the weather held off for us which helped.”
