Portlethen Primary School held their annual Spring Fayre last Saturday and, despite a formidable forecast, the weather was kind.

The fayre was opened by Cara McKenzie, Portlethen Primary’s own princess, by cutting the pink ribbon.

Newtonhill Pipe Band performed on the day.

A whopping £4027 was raised on the day.

Portlethen Scouts performed a sterling service by catering for the visitors with an array of hot food from their grill and the kitchen crew led by Mrs Dear provided splendid refreshments. Newtonhill Pipe Band performed a rousing rendition of traditional Scottish tunes, and were joined by three pupils from the school new to the band for their debut performance.

Skip Hop who have sessions at Jubilee Hall in Portlethen, gave a demonstration of their amazing skills and Jazzercise inspired the crowd with their dazzling display.

Stall holders included toys, crafts, tempting cupcakes, and jewellery and were mingled with traditional Fayre games such as Ping pong in the jars, and a human fruit machine which went down very well with young and old alike and caused much hilarity!

Portlethen Primary's School Fair was a huge success.

Rebecca Scott, chair of the PSA, praised all of the support given on the day

She said: “I was blown away by the generosity not only of the volunteers and supporters giving their time and energy so freely, but also by the number of folk saying how much they enjoyed the fayre.

‘‘We don’t know how much we have raised yet, but it has been a fantastic morning out for families.

‘‘It has also given the school community an opportunity to enjoy themselves while raising funds”
