Something for everyone was the promise at a Sheffield school’s annual summer fair – and organisers proved true to their word.

The annual event at Firth Park Community Arts College was bigger and better than ever thanks to hard work from the school’s Friends group.

It meant that crowds flocked to one of the college’s biggest fundraising events of the year.

There were over 50 stalls to browse – featuring gifts, crafts, jewellery, clothes, books, toys, plants, cakes, bric a brac and much more.

And there were plenty of action-packed activities for the youngsters, including giant sumo suits, a climbing wall, inflatable slides, and zorb ball racing.

Students also showcased their musical talents with a variety of live performances featuring singing, dance and instrumental solos.

There were competitions and raffles for those who were feeling lucky, as well as games and a cake auction.

The fair has become a major event since the Friends group was formed in 2011.

“We think we put on a great day this year which featured fun for all the family,” said one of the organisers, Gordon Henshaw.

“We were determined to have fun whatever the weather – and celebrate that summer is here at last,” he added.
