VILLAGERS helped to raise hundreds towards a school’s weather station.
Emley First School hosted a Christmas Fair featuring a visit from Santa and a host of stalls and refreshments.
PTA chairman, Rosey James, said: “We are still working out exactly how much we raised, but are confident we raised at least £1,800 towards our weather station which is fantastic. We are hoping that Barclays will be match funding a good part of that.
“The Year 4 and 5 pupils in Amethyst Class selling their own decorated baubles as part of a social enterprise project, raised almost £200. Their teacher Edward Firth was thrilled as the pupils had taken on the whole project including marketing and advertising and forecasting profit margins.”
