RAIN failed to dampen the spirits of children at Thorns Primary School who came up with all manner of imaginative designs for their first-ever pumpkin and scarecrow festival.

Youngsters at the school in Thorns Road brought in homemade creations on Friday October 26 before breaking up for half term.

Stourbridge News:

Downpours prevented the event from being held outside on the field as planned but teachers said the hall provided a suitable alternative and a great time was had by all.

Entrepreneurial year six pupils, keen to raise money for new playground equipment, also organised a cake sale which ran alongside the event.
