A fireworks display to mark Bonfire Night has raised more than £2,500 for a village school.

Its organisers are 'delighted' with the result, and the funds will go towards aiding pupils' education.

Wrington Primary School held its fireworks display at the village recreation ground on November 8.

The night also featured a bar, as well as a barbecue.

A spokesman from Wrington's parent-teacher association (PTA) said: "We are delighted to announce that we have raised a record-breaking £2502.52 this year, all of which goes to the school to support our children's education.

"Thank you so much to everyone who came along, and of course to all our volunteers who helped make it happen, we're so grateful for all of your support."

The PTA also gave 'huge thanks' to Wrington businesses Amors, Buglers, The Treasury and Mother Hen for selling tickets in the run-up to the event.
