A SUMMER fair to celebrate the 50th birthday of Moorfield Primary School in Widnes has been hailed a huge success.

Around 1,200 visitors attended the event on Saturday.

The Mayor of Halton, Clr Shaun Osborne crowned Eve Pugh as rose queen and Thomas Robinson as rose king.

Fancy dress, stalls, activities and games made it an action packed afternoon of family fun.

Head teacher Andy Williams said: “There was a brilliant carnival atmosphere. It was an amazing occasion, a fitting tribute.

“We are all overwhelmed by the support we received from everyone.

“It is a privilege to be the fifth head teacher of this wonderful school. Each head teacher has helped to create and establish Moorfield as you see it today. We are all proud of the legacy that lies before you and the uniqueness that is Moorfield.”
