The event was organised by the school PTA, Starship, who are raising money for the new library bus project.

Head teacher Mr Chapman said: “The school would like to say a massive thank you to all who helped and supported this event. It was a brilliant atmosphere, enjoyed by all.”

Children have also written letters to Father Christmas this year. They then took them to the post office where they bought stamps and posted them.
