International sporting events kicked of a have a go sports theme at this year’s Bramham Primary school summer fair.

Over 400 people flocked to the school hall, playground and field which were a hive of activity as children challenged themselves to scale the 27 feet high mobile climbing wall and enjoyed trying new sports in golf and hockey workshops.

The Summer Fair was organised by Friends of Bramham School and chairman, Georgina Mills, said: “Today has been a fantastic day for our school.

“It is great to see so many children having a go at climbing, golf and hockey, as well as enjoying themselves on the fun games and stalls.

“We would like to thank everyone who supported our event, as we have raised an incredible £2,380 for the school.

“These funds will go towards our project of increasing technology resources available in the classrooms.

“We would also like to publicly say thank you for the £500 of financial support which we kindly received for this event from the Outer North East Well-Being Fund. The Well-Being Fund grant was awarded by local Ward Members.”

As well as the sports, children also enjoyed an array of traditional fair activities including an inflatable disco dome, face painting, hook-a-duck, splatted rats, and goal scoring past their PE teacher.

There was also an abundance of stalls to treat the taste buds, whether something from the BBQ, a pancake, scrumptious cakes, or a glass of Pimms from the bar.

“It was an afternoon full of smiles and happy faces in absolutely glorious summer sunshine,” added Georgina.
