Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

A MAY queen and her at­ten­dants pa­raded through the vil­lage to mark the start of an­other school fair.

Amy Par­don was cho­sen as the May Queen for the fair at Hollinhey Pri­mary School this year.

Amy with her six at­ten­dants and three page boys took part in a pro­ces­sion through the vil­lage to the school where there was a crown­ing cer­e­mony and the event was de­clared open.

There was a host of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment at the school for this year’s fair, which was en­joyed by staff, par­ents and the com­mu­nity.

This year’s fair had a cir­cus theme and there were ac­tiv­i­ties set around this for the chil­dren. This in­cluded cir­cus skills work­shops.

There was a raf­fle, pony rides, gifts and stalls, games and crafts and a bar­be­cue. Chil­dren from the school gave per­for­mances for staff and fam­i­lies at the event.

Janet Mott, head­teacher, said: “We had an­other great sum­mer fair, this year with a lovely cir­cus theme for the chil­dren to take part in. There were lots of tasty re­fresh­ments, two bouncy cas­tles, cir­cus tricks, danc­ing and per­for­mances by our brass trio and choirs.

“Money raised at the event goes into school funds and there was money raised for lo­cal char­i­ties too. We all had a great time thanks to the hard work of staff and par­ents.”
