The students had also organised their very own mini world cup for people to take part in - which Holland won.

The Burgess Hill Runners made an appearance for their annual fun run at the fayre which took place on Saturday, June 23.

Having earned a well-deserved rest, the runners along with the rest of the public were able to relax, listen to the music, and watch the dancing.

People were encouraged to nibble on a burger expertly cooked by the science department, sip on a beer and finish with a home made cake.
