A disco, rock-painting, a bouncy castle and sweet cones were on offer to guests at St Nicholas Preschool’s fete.

Staff put on a tombola, a raffle and craft activities for the youngsters who attended.

Children painted pebbles ready to hide around the town with Weston Super Rocks.

There was also a disco, face-painting, inflatables and a number of items for sale including cards and clothes.

The preschool meets in St Nicholas Church hall, in Uphill Way, and the event raised £470 for preschool funds, which will go towards a project to improve the outside area.

Staff want to replace the chippings at the back of the building with an even flooring so the children can play on it.

The preschool needs to raise another £4,000 to reach the total, so staff have applied for grants.
