Organisers are delighted with the bumper total which will help develop the school library

Shute Primary School raised £1,300 at its special Winter Wonderland Christmas Fair.

Organised by the PTFA, the event which was held in the school grounds earlier this month.

The bumper sum was raised towards school projects thanks to pupils, families, friends and staff.

Festive stalls with local crafts and produce, games, skittles and a family barbecue were all on offer, as well as mulled cider and mince pies.
