CHILDREN put on their best fancy dress to take part in a village fun day.

Pupils at Madras Aided Primary School in Penley put on a variety of costumes to celebrate the school’s annual summer fair, which is run in connection with the village’s St Mary Magdalene Church.

The event saw a range of activites and stalls including a bouncy castle, taekwondo demonstrations, a tombola, a raffle and craft stalls.

There was also a demonstration from the Border Counties Dance School.

The event raised £1,800, with the cash set to be divided between the church and the school.

A signed Liverpool FC football fetched £190 through a sealed-bid auction.

Year Six pupils were charged with the task of picking the winning entries for each year group in the fancy dress competition.

Sally Evans, school adminstrator, said: “We were blessed with some beautiful weather and it was a day that everyone enjoyed.

“There was a fantastic turnout from parents and villagers. We’ve managed to raise £1,800 on the day, with more money set to come in.

“It was a brilliant community event – as it is each year.”
