George Henton has his face painted by Victoria Sheldon at Coppice Primary School’s 60th anniversary summer fair on Saturday, which raised £1,000 .

Tombola games kept youngsters entertained, while parents browsed craft stalls and tried out ales courtesy of Marlpool Brewing Company. An evening ‘hoedown’ with traditional Cali music was also well attended. Head teacher Alison Seaton said: “It was lovely to see the community pulling together.”
