TEACHers gamely took a volley of wet sponges to the face as part of Swanwick Primary School’s summer fair.

A host of activities were on offer at the annual event which this year managed to raise £1,750 for the school.

Visitors played a number of games and tombolas, with one of the most popular attractions involving some of the primary schools teachers.

Even the deputy head volunteered to put his head in the stocks and get pelted by wet sponges, in a bid to raise funds for the school,

Entertainment was also provided by children’s magician, Y-Not, the Academy of Alfreton Taekwondoe and hip-hop dance troupe, Strictly Dance Entertainment.

Dawn Wimbush, chairperson of the Friends of Swanwick Primary School, which organises the yearly event, said the turn-out for the occasion was ‘excellent’.

She added: “We had a lot of support from the Friends’ community but we had lots of other parents and teachers help. We also had plenty of support from local businesses, which donated lots of raffle prizes.”
