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.
