A school held its ‘most successful’ summer fair ever recently.

St Mary’s School in Amersham held its summer fair on a Sunday for the first time ever on July 3, and it has been deemed a huge success.

There was a huge turn-out at the event, which raised about £6,000 for the school.

The event, organised by the Friends of St Mary’s team, had a host of attractions including a bouncy castle, tug-of-war, bar, barbecue, raffle, stalls run by the year fives and a special guest appearance by Watford Football Club mascot Harry the Hornet, who opened the fair with a presentation and cutting of a ribbon.

Watford’s Community Sport and Education Trust brought inflatable games and ran skills sessions with the children.

The school’s judo and dance teams also performed.

Dawn Lammin from the school said: “It will be remembered as perhaps our most popular summer fair to date and the one that’s made the most profit for the school.”
