Loom bracelets, tin can alley and a bouncy castle were a handful of activities enjoyed by children at Forge Lane Primary school, yesterday (16) afternoon.

With the sun shining over Hanworth , families tucked into sandwiches, crisps, donuts and fruit in the field at the annual summer picnic.

The fundraising event which also hosted staged performances such as a talent show and choir singing, as well as a football tournament, helped raise £580 which will be invested back into the school.

 

Sue Hamblin, school administrator, said: "It was a really hot day and lovely we had the ice-cream van here too.

"It was a lot to pack in two hours but we managed it.

"The talent show was really good. Lodge Brothers had provided trophies for the winner and two runners up."

Organised by the school's Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) committee, staff also manned stalls for tombola, loom bracelets, face painting and books.

One of the highlights for the children this school year included meeting former England rugby player Martin Offiah .
