THE sun shone on Grateley Primary School as families came out to enjoy its annual summer fete.

On Saturday, young and old descended on the village to enjoy the traditional festivities.

Throughout the day pupils showcased their skills in the talent show, with a trumpet player, singers, comedians, and hula hoopers entertaining the crowds.

Admin officer and compère on the day, Sarah McNair said: “The day started off a bit gusting, we did think we were going to have to cancel at one point. It was a little bit like Wizard of Oz, but we battled on and persevered on like Grateley Primary School does and we won the day and the sun came out.”

There were also plenty of stalls to keep fete-goers entertained including plants, soaps, face painting and the traditional tombola and raffle, with people generous with their donations for the day.

Activities were available for people to have a go at, with children and big kids alike trying their hand at karaoke, martial arts, and colouring, to name a few. Games were also set up by the school, which gave people the chance throw a coconut and beat the goalie.

Money raised from the event will help the school with its project to develop an outside science area.
