More than £2,500 was raised at Castle Batch Primary School's Christmas fair on Saturday.

Stallholders including Pallet2ProductCo, Lin and Jodie Huxtable's chocolate bouquets and other festive-themed games were open, while youngsters paid Father Christmas a visit in his grotto.

Hungry guests also tucked into some delicious food served up by volunteers, which included a barbecue and mince pies.

Volunteers from YouTree cancer support group were also on hand to offer advice.

Money raised will go towards providing outdoor space and play equipment for youngsters.

A school spokesman said: "We had a fantastic day and managed to raise an incredible amount of money which the children will benefit from."

Castle Batch will host its summer fair in July.
