ORGANISERS of a Mossley primary school’s summer fair have been left taken aback by its success after it raised more than £1,700.
Milton St John’s, on Mill Lane, saw hundreds of current pupils, former pupils plus parents descend as it threw open its doors.
And the £1,750.02 contributed will go a long way to helping children as the money, which topped last year’s total, will go towards equipment.
Classrooms turned into stalls as various tombolas took place, while a cake stall and café – selling hot dogs and hot and cold drinks – were especially popular.
Outside, children were eager to have a go on the fire engine that was in place whole the queue for the bouncy castle was constant.
In the hall, the Good Vibrations choir entertained by singing a string of soul, Motown and current huts, which went down as well with the younger attendees -m almost as well as the chance to soak a teacher in the playground.
