CHRISTMAs came early for Fritchley Primary School as their annual festive fair got underway.

The annual event was organised by the Friends of Fritchley Primary School with all the funds going towards the school’s building project that was carried in the summer to restructure sections of the school.

More than 20 stalls were arranged along with a barbecue, home-made refreshments and a Victoria sponge cake competition, while Rammie, the Derby County Mascot, was on hand to meet and greet visitors.

Along with the popular Jumicars- in which youngsters had fun racing the electronic cars around the playground circuit- the school was able to raise more than £1,500.

School administrator Sue Whitehead said: “We had a fantastic time, a good day was had by all.”

The school has so far raised about half of the £22,000, or ten per cent of the overall cost of the building work, they were required to raise.
