Ducks were the theme of Deighton Gates Summer Fair held at the primary school in more ways than one.

The afternoon was bright and action-packed, with stalls, games and activities and all round family entertainment.

Elaine Hill and her sheep dogs entertained the crowds herding ducks, geese and ducklings. They climbed over bridges, waded through pools and before being tucked neatly into pens.

Children got a chance to soak a teacher as well as drive a real car.

A spokesman for the school said: “Despite the wet weather the atmosphere was buzzing and the school field was an array of people of all ages having fun!

“All in all a great time was had by all and we raised a staggering £2,400 which will help to fund our new children’s playground.
