Bit­ten by the camp­ing bug

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

A week­end of camp­ing has raised more than £450 to pay for the re­fur­bish­ment of a play area for young­sters.

Six­teen fam­i­lies from Char­ing Pri­mary School en­joyed the great out­doors, tak­ing part in a trea­sure hunt, team games, ten­nis, a wa­ter fight, camp­fire, and bar­be­cue.

There was a short fam­ily ser­vice, led by the Rev Richard Webb.

Part of the money raised will be spent on dec­o­ra­tion in the re­cep­tion class’s out­door learn­ing area, with colour­ful mu­rals planned.

Jo Ast­bury, PTFA sec­re­tary, said: “Many par­ents have been bit­ten by the camp­ing bug as a di­rect re­sult of this event.”
