Essential cash for library books and playground equipment was raised at the Furze Platt Schools' Christmas Party.

Children and their parents embraced the event, held at the infant school in Oaken Grove on Saturday.

They were drawn in by a range of attractions, including Santa and his grotto - actually a converted bus - and the Saint Sebastian Wokingham Band, which performed brass versions of carols.

A variety of stalls, run by parents, were complemented by a tombola.

Organised by the Furze Platt Schools Association (FPSA), the money will go towards important items for pupils, including musical instruments.

FPSA member Paul Thompson said it was great to see the school community turn out for the day.

"Everyone seems really happy. I've seen lots of smiling parents and children," he said.

"We have got lots of parents who kindly volunteered to go on the stalls.

"It is wonderful to see everyone come together."
