The sun definitely had its hat on for a Stevenage school’s annual summer fayre on Saturday.

Featherstone Wood Primary School celebrated the day with lots of activities including a bouncy castle, an assault course and a human fruit machine.

Chairman of the school’s PTA, Anji Archer, said: “It was an absolutely fantastic day. Everyone really enjoyed it and it was so lucky that the weather held out.”

All of the money raised on the day will go to the school’s PTA which will use it to buy things the school needs.

“We’ve bought musical instruments in the past and recently paid for benches to be made,” Anji said.

The police and fire service were also on hand to teach kids about their role in the community and how to stay safe.

Football team Shephall United manned the barbecue and provided everyone with much welcomed food in the July heat.

There were also lots of stalls selling a wide array of items. One of these was run by Bliss – a charity which supports prematurely born babies and their families – which will use the money raised to support the vital work it does at the town’s Lister Hospital.

It’s the second fayre the school has held and was every bit as successful as last year’s inaugural event, according to Anji.
