Children were given the chance to sit behind the wheel of a police car at an action packed annual school fete.
On Saturday, June 24, Squirrels Heath infant and junior schools, both on Salisbury Road, Gidea Park, held their fun annual event.
Parents and their youngsters poured into the playgrounds to participate in the activities which included bouncy castles, pillow wars and zumo suits.
“There was a lovely party atmosphere, [with] children laughing, smiling and enjoying the bouncy castles,” said staff member, Kerrie Murphy.
“The children enjoyed sitting in the police car and setting off the siren.
“They [the officers] also brought police helmets, caps and shields which the children could try on.
The crowds were also entertained by a lovely song sung by the junior choir and singing club.
People also got to enjoy the grand opening of the schools’ new artificial grass meadow area.
“Thank you to all that helped to make this day so special,” Kerrie added.
