A bake-off, a coconut shy and a bouncy castle helped a preschool to raise more than £375.
St Nicholas Church Preschool in Uphill held a fete at the church hall with games, a tombola and stalls selling books, toys, sweets and refreshments.
Baking fans were invited to take along their tempting desserts to be tasted by the judges – Revd Mark Madeley and the former preschool leader Carol Hartley.
The lucky judges tucked into chocolate crispy cakes, beautifully decorated fairy cakes and muffins before revealing the great Uphill bake-off competition winner – Rachel Madeley, who was presented with a plate for her baking prowess.
Money raised will go towards improving the preschool’s outdoor play area.
The preschool is run in St Nicholas Church hall, in Old Church Road, and run by a committee.
Members have raised £6,000 for the outdoor play area so far and are hoping to start work on the project soon.
