Banners stolen from Portishead school

PARENTS and staff at a Portishead school are turning to local businesses for help to replace two stolen advertising banners.

PARENTS and staff at a Portishead school are turning to local businesses for help to replace two stolen advertising banners.

Members of High Down School's Parents and Staff Association (PSA) are hoping local businesses will sponsor new banners which are draped over the school fence to advertise forthcoming fundraising events.

Co-chairman, Paula Snell, said: "We don't know who is doing this but the banners for both the harvest fayre and the toy sale were stolen within 24 hours of displaying them. "As a result, takings for both events were way down on previous years, which is very disappointing for us as well as the pupils.

"The PSA are raising funds to provide new digital cameras and some historical costumes for dressing up for the children."
