Hutton Primary School in Church Lane hosted its annual festive celebration on Saturday when dozens of excited children and parents descended to get into the spirit.

Hand-crafted Christmas creations including decorations, cakes and gifts filled the school.

Santa Claus also took time out of his hectic schedule to visit children while fun-filled games like chocolate tombola and a bottle raffle kept everyone entertained.

A spokesman said: “Huge thanks to every single person who supported our Christmas fair today.

“Whether you donated, helped out with preparations, ran a stall or came to spend.

“We could not do it without you all.”

The fair raised a total of £1,392 for the school.
