Fam­ily and friends of chil­dren atAld­ing­ton Pri­mary School en­joyed the an­nual sum­mer fete in the sun­shine last Sun­day.

The space-themed event was held at the school on Ro­man Road where mem­bers of the com­mu­nity could take part in games and ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing train rides, beat the goalie and tombo­las.

Marli the Ma­gi­cian also joined in the fun and there were also space lab­o­ra­tory ex­per­i­ments to try. Vis­i­tors were able to en­joy the bar­be­cue and bar pro­vided in the sun­shine as well. Ju­lia Ever­son, co-chair of Ald­ing­ton School’s PTFA said: “The event was very well at­tended by par­ents and mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity. “A fi­nal profit has not yet been cal­cu­lated but we do know that we have done rather well.” She added: “The PTFA would like to send a huge thank you to par­ents, staff, gov­er­nors, chil chil­dren, lo­cal busi­nesses and the lo­cal com­mu­nity for all of the sup­port and good­will they have shown.” Money raised from the event will be used to fund school ex­tras for the chil chil­dren such as an As­tro Turf area.
