Magical day for primary school families

Kingsmead Primary School held its annual summer fair on Friday, offering a whole host of exciting activities for children and parents alike to get stuck into.

The fair, which was funded by Sanctuary Housing, offered younger visitors the chance to try their luck in a football penalty shoot-out, have their faces painted or explore the craft stalls.

Those holding the purse strings meanwhile, could pick up raffle tickets for their chance to win a range of prizes donated by local shops and businesses.

Musical entertainment was also provided courtesy of the Kingsmead Steel Pans Band, who also starred in Sanctuary’s annual awards ceremony earlier this year.

Sophie Lejeune-Peggie, Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, said: “The Kingsmead Primary School Fair is a great example of the kind of community-led programmes we look to invest in.

“We’re always keen to support the development of successful communities, and events like this are a great way of bringing people together and encouraging them to find out about further community projects within the area.”

Evelyn Deeney, associate headteacher at Kingsmead Primary School, added: “We are very grateful for Sanctuary Housing’s continued support of our wonderful Summer Fair – their contribution really helps to make the fair the success that it is.”
