Winter fair fun at Stoke Newington schools

Father Christmas lights up the day.

FATHER Christmas managed to be in two places at the same time as he tried to find out who had been naughty or nice at two Hackney schools.

The jolly red gent was on hand at Grasmere Primary School in Albion Road, and Jubilee Primary School in Filey Avenue, both Stoke Newington, on Friday December 10 to help with their winter fairs.

Sparkling grottos at each school welcomed Santa and let him sit down and find out what youngsters want for Christmas just a few days before he is due to have the busiest night of his year.

Face painting, foods and games were also available at both schools all day as parents, pupils and staff came together to make the day a success for all.
