IT was smiles all round at a nursery school summer fayre on Friday at which a record amount of cash was raised.

Fundraising efforts ensured more than £850 was collected at the St James Nursery summer fayre, beating last years’ total by £200.

The day was packed with fun activities for the children to enjoy, with facepainting, football, and lots more.

The most popular attraction was the penalty shootout which was planned to coincide with the World Cup.

Nursery manager Christine Marchant said the day had gone really well, thanks in no small part to the glorious sunshine.

“It’s nice for the mums to get together as well as the children,” said Christine.

“It was good to see how everybody was friendly and everybody getting on.”

There was a Zumba class which children joined in, stalls for arts and crafts, a lucky dip and a host of other activities.

Children form North Lancing Primary school were encouraged to stop in on their way home from school, which only helped to bolster the turnout, which was in excess of 100 people.

All money raised will go towards buying new nursery equipment.
