More than 900 people enjoyed festive activities and a fireworks display at a Harold Hill.

Drapers’ Maylands Primary School in Settle Road brought the community together to celebrate the children’s enterprise skills with a Firework Night on Friday, November 2.

Guests enjoyed a hunt for buried treasure, hook-a-duck, penalty shoot-out with a player from east Thurrock Football Club, a tombola and many more activities.

The children also took part in an activity where they planned and helped run a stall in a bid to win the famed Enterprise Cup.

“It was a resounding success in bringing the whole community together and we will definitely do it again,” said Ms Spillane, principal at the school.

The Drapers’ Maylands Primary school staff worked with parents and carers as well as sixth formers from the Drapers’ Academy in collaboration to make the event so successful that it has raised a considerable amount towards the development of the schools outdoor learning areas.
