Young visitors to St Edwards Catholic First School's summer fair in Parsonage Lane made beautiful music together on Saturday.

They had a choice of instruments to try out - all provided by i-rock, the organisation that gives music tuition to pupils at the school.

Some chose to have a go on the guitar while others found their inner 'Ringo' by taking it out on the drum kit.

There were plenty of other things to do at the fair

There was a rowing machine and a 'littl;e gym' obstacle course to try and even a chance to throw sponges at brave teachers Zoe Clark and Victoria Cooper.

There was also an opportunity for children to test their strength by lifting some weights.

Everyone loves a Bake Off contest.

So pupils from the school had brought along cakes they had made and the Royal Borough's deputy mayor Cllr Gary Muir judged them.

The fair made £5,000 which will go towards the cost of a visiting theatre group Thrift, which will be working with pupils during a planned interactive week later this year.

Headteacher Sarah Matthews said the fair was a great success despite the changeable weather.

She said: "We were lucky with the weather. It did not rain until 10 minutes before we finished. The trouble was the gazebos got wet so we could not put them away."
