A new Sidcup free school has enjoyed its first summer fun day.

Hope Community School in Rectory Lane welcomed around 200 people for the fundraiser, including parents of pupils set to start in reception in September.

The school will then have two classes, including last September’s starters, with the plan to fill it all the way up to year six by 2019.

Friends of the school enjoyed face painting, clay making, a raffle, tombola, live music, a bouncy castle and a cake stand on July 5.

Pupils also put on a puppet show, a dance competition and had to guess the number of balloons in a car.

Community partnership officer Mary Rouse said: "It was a brilliant day.

"I would like to thank our sponsors BMW and MP James Brokenshire for coming along and all those in the local community who supported us."
