Hundreds of families enjoyed an afternoon of fun, games and activities at Hassocks Infant School’s Summer Fair on Saturday.

Entertainment was provided by the Ukes of Hassocks while the ever-popular ‘human fruit machine’ also kept the crowds entertained.

Children enjoyed games including hook a duck, panning for gold and a soft toy tombola and other attractions included face painting, a BBQ and Pimms tent.

Children from all year groups made products to sell on the day including book marks, flower pots, seed bombs and fruit smoothies.

Emma Hidalgo de Quintana, co-chair of the Friends of Hassocks Infant School (FHIS) said: “The day was all about celebrating everything that we love about our school and we had a great day. The children worked really hard to produce some lovely things to sell, and helped make signs for all the stalls.”

The event raised more than £7,000 for FHIS, 10 per cent of which will be donated to the Madagascan Development Fund towards the construction of a school in one of the world’s poorest countries.
