SOME parents at Ruishton Primary School fete got a soaking on Saturday - despite the sunshine.

The Soak the Parent activity was one of the popular attractions at the Parent Teacher Friends Association event.

Also among the fun was a chance for children to get behind the wheel of a car in the playground thanks to Alpha Driving School.

Children and parents were able to burn off some energy with a Bounce and Burn session, and Beat the Goalie, while Keith Stevens ran a barn dance class.

Among the stalls was a raffle and tombola, plants for sale, an opportunity to join the school lottery, sweets, toys and crafts.

There was also a puzzle book stall, candyfloss and refreshments, as well as a burger van.

The well-attended afternoon raised £2,230 for school funds to buy new play equipment.

The PTFA has now raised an amazing £9,200 since April.

Jo Strand, who organised the fete, said: "It's all going back into the school for additional equipment and experiences for the children, who will decided what they want for their playground.

"There were plenty of people at the fete, which was a great success.

"We had wonderful weather for the event and it was really buzzing."
