The money will be used to buy special playground activities which will be painted onto the floor in thermal paint as well as computer tablets for children.

Vice co chairman of Friends, Sam Prigg, said: “Everyone works really hard on the committee so that it is a real success for fund raising.

“Everybody has a fantastic time, a big thanks to everybody involved and all those who turned out to make it such a success.”

The fair kicked off with the screening of a Christmas film, which this year was Arthur Christmas, a visit from Santa and a host of games like hook a duck, hoop on a bottle, face painting, children’s crafts, biscuit decorating, a Christmas pudding stall and a raffle.
