A primary school welcomed the start of the festive season with its annual event Light Up Warley.

Children from Woodlands School, Great Warley, celebrated on Friday, November 30, as almost of the school’s families came together to switch on its Christmas lights.

Year 6 pupil Pippa won the competition to turn on the lights this year, thanks to her beautiful poster design.

From fairground rides and hot food, to sweet snacks and craft stalls run by small businesses, there was plenty going on to keep everyone busy.

There were also performances from several groups of children signing pop and Christmas songs and, of course, a special visit from Santa Claus himself too!

As well as the usual festive activities, the whole community got behind Year 3 and Year 4 pupils Ella, Neha and Francesca who all had their long ponytails chopped off to raise money for the Little Princess Trust.

They aimed to raise £1,000 and have so far managed to surpass their expectations by raising more than £2,300.

Headmaster David Bell said: “We’re so lucky at Woodlands to have such a great team of parents and staff who always go the extra mile to pull these events together.

“From beautiful singing to delicious food and of course three brave young ladies having their hair cut off for charity, Light Up Warley has been a huge success this year!”
