Visitors turned out in the sunshine on Saturday (June 27) for the annual Downlands Community School summer fair.

Billed as the biggest the school in Hassocks had ever held, the event was filled with fun for all ages.

Pupils in the school bands entertaining crowds were a popular last minute addition to the proceedings.

Lead parents organiser Neville Subedar said: “The main event was the extreme stunt show. We have two showings of that.

We ran out of beer at the end of the day and also the Pimm’s tent did very well.

“Altogether from a visitor point of view, I think everyone enjoyed themselves.”

“The dog show was very popular and that kept going all day.

“The headteacher came up to me and she said she sees a load of smiling faces. That was encouraging and hopefully we will build on that success next year. We were very fortunate with the weather.”

The event was raising money to replace the school’s computer equipment.
