Spalding Primary School has about £5,500 more for its children after a successful summer fete full of fun for families in the town.

Line dancing, zumba, trampolining, rodeo sheep, bungee run and a 50-feet assault course were some of the highlights of the fete, organised by parents and attracting more than 2,000 people earlier this month.

Sarah Walker, chairman of the school’s parent teacher association (PTA), said: “It went wonderfully, we were extremely busy and it was really good fun.

“We’ve had lots of feedback, both from children and parents, who said that they really enjoyed the variety of entertainment and food available.

“It was just like a carnival and a lot of people said how well-organised it was.”

“The PTA is in place to fund exciting things for the children and this year, we spent a lot of money buying outdoor gym equipment, discos, pantomimes and outings.

“If it wasn’t for the PTA, that wouldn’t be the case.”
