A BOUNCY castle, balloon sculptor, performance by Berko’s Big Band, tombola, and book and plant stalls are just some of the activities at a school’s spring fair.

The annual event at Swing Gate First and Nursery School in Berkhamsted is expected to attract hundreds of visitors on Saturday.

Organisers have been setting up the programme of events for the 11am to 2pm fete since February.

The school’s Year 4 pupils will host their own ‘business entrepreneurs’ stall, selling their own specially made product - to be unveiled to guests on the day.

Sports tuition firm Little Champions will provide free sessions for three- to seven-year-olds.

There will also be a ‘froggy flume’ where players stamp on a plank to try and fire a toy into a net. There will also be a Pimms stall for adults.

Father-of-two Jamie Currey, who helped organise the event, said: “It will be a really enjoyable day for all of the children, their families and the wider town.

“The kids love it and always really look forward to it. They are really excited about it.”

Organisers have collected £1,000 from selling advertising in a programme for fair guests, and hope to make at least £2,000 more from the event itself.

The annual fair has now been held for more than 10 years.
