Inwood Nursery, in Wrington Road, made a total of £1,594 at their first Christmas fair.

At the fair, guests were able to buy cakes which were on sale at the cake stalls, raffle tickets, crafts and books which had been donated to the nursery.

Children could also visit Santa's grotto.

The nursery reached their target of £1,330 to buy the life-saving piece of equipment.
