MORE than 400 people enjoyed the annual family fun day at Barley HIll School last weekend, raising £2,500.

Children and their families enjoyed the glorious sunshine throughout the day, as they took part in the nature-themed stalls.

This included a petting zoo, children’s stalls and an assault course.

Headteacher Anne Stopforth said: “The wonderful weather made a great day even better and enabled families, children and staff to enjoy the many events on offer.

“Our thanks go to Barley Hill PTA and parents for their commitment, time, energy and enthusiasm to organise such a successful community event and raise additional funds for Barley Hill.”

Chair of the PTA, Hilary Struthers added: “The fun day has been a huge success, with the great weather contributing to the considerable efforts made by many school children and parents.

“Alongside the class stalls, we had various food options including a hog roast and cake stall.

“Performances by the school country dancing team and orchestra ran alongside the more impromptu children’s races and tug of war to ensure all who wanted to could take part.”
