Teach­ers in the stocks

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - All The Fun Of The Fair -

Tra­di­tional en­ter­tain­ment drew the crowds for a school’s sum­mer fair.

At­trac­tions at Goat Lees Pri­mary School’s fair in­cluded a co­conut shy, bouncy cas­tle, hook-a-duck and stocks, for which head teacher Teresa Adams bravely vol­un­teered.

A raf­fle with top prizes in­clud­ing lunch at East­well Manor, plus a tombola added to the fun at the Ken­ning­ton school on Satur­day.

Nearly £1,500 was raised from fair and or­gan­iser Ju­lia Cox, who chairs the Friends of Goat Lees, said: “There was a good turnout on the day of around 200 peo­ple and there was a great com­mu­nity spirit on the day.

“I would like to say a big thankyou to evey­one who has sup­ported the school fete and to the Friends of Goat Lees for their hard work.”
