Weston Hills Primary School’s annual summer fayre proved to be both enjoyable for guests and emotional for retiring headteacher Chrisina Turnell.

Maypole dancing, craft stalls, tombola and a prize raffle were some of the attractions at the annual event where present and former pupils, parents and governors had their first chance to say goodbye to Mrs Turnell after 22 years as the school’s headteacher.

The fayre was organised by members of Weston Hills Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and raised more than £2,000 for the school.

Peter Simpson, PTA vice chairman said: “We did a few new things such as having a climbing wall, Soak a Teacher and a number of craft stalls.

“Our proceeds were £900 up on last year which, as a new committee, we were very happy with and it was a fitting farewell for Mrs Turnell after 22 years.”

Mrs Turnell said: “It went very well and the PTA did a marvellous job in inviting so many old friends and past students who came with their children.”
