A fun day was had by all who attended a school’s mad hatters tea party themed fair on Saturday.

Organised by Oakfield Montessori School’s parent teacher association (PTA), children showed off the lovely hats that they had made.

Jennie Browning-Adams, who spoke on behalf of the PTA, said the children enjoyed themselves.

“The children had a lot of fun,” she said.

“The hat parade was the finale and lots of children took part and made a big effort with their hats.

“We raised lots of money and hope for it to be around £4,000 for the PTA.

“The money will go towards the school for anything that they wish.”

Jennie said some of the cash raised will go towards creating a pond at the school in Harwood Hall Lane, Upminster, and future events for the children.

“For us its all about the kids and allowing the kids to have extra fun things to do.”
