In pictures: Falconry display wows at Furze Platt summer fair

A falconry display and tug-of-war contest were highlights of the Furze Platt Infant and Junior School summer fair in Maidenhead.

The annual fundraiser took place on Saturday at the Oaken Grove venue.

Activities included a tug-of-war contest, bouncy castle, face painting, skittles, coconut shy and 'soak the teacher'.

There was also morris dancing and maypole dancing as well as a dog show.

Prospect Estate Agency sponsored the fair. Staff took along a Mini and visitors had to guess the number of balloons inside it.

PTA chairwoman Jo Jennings said: "We enjoyed a great day with a high number of people turning out for the summer fair.

"The children particularly enjoyed the falconry flying display and other birds of prey."

A total of £7,250 was raised and the money will be used fund ongoing projects to develop an outdoor play area for the infant school and equip the junior school with IT  technology.
