Deepings fun day and recycled costumes 25 years ago in 1996

Pupils travelled to Deeping St James Primary School to enjoy a day of fun 25 years ago.

Around 100 children from the Deepings and surrounding villages gathered at the school for games, sports and themed activities.

Youngsters had their faces painted, while parents took home arts and crafts, paintings, models and puppets. Balloon modellers and stilt walkers provided entertainment.

Play leader Mrs Kate Shinkins said: “It really is a lot of fun and we look forward to it as much as the children do.”

School pupils embraced their creative sides back in 1996.

Soft drink cans, sweet wrappers and egg boxes were recycled by Deepings youngsters to create imaginative fashion costumes.

As part of the Escape 96 holiday programme, they designed and made their own clothes from recycled products.

The two-day course at Deepings Youth Centre ended with a fashion parade.

It was hoped the event would be repeated in November later that year.
