Children from the Revel Primary School have scored a brand new football kit thanks to sponsorship from a transport firm.

They visited William Stobart Transportation last week to show off their new kits.

Andrew Edwards, headteacher at the Monks Kirby school, said: “The children were over the moon at receiving the new football kit, especially as the year three and four girls are through to the County Finals in Birmingham on March 30.

“They are proud to be wearing a football kit from such an established and big company.”

Now students are preparing for the school’s summer fayre on Saturday, July 15.

Mr Edwards said: “It promises to be a fantastic day out for the whole family.

“The fayre is open to the public from 11am - 4pm and those who attended last year, or previously when it was the Bilton Fayre, will already be eagerly anticipating the day.”

This year local band ‘The Sound’ will be performing two live one hour sets on the Stobart Stage alongside demonstrations and performances from other talents as well as the school choirs.

Rugby FM breakfast DJ Jason Moss will be hosting the event and attractions include funfair rides, stalls, hot food, a beer tent, amazing colour maze, large and inflatables.

Mr Edwards added: “Why not put the date in the diary and plan for a great day out in the countryside?”
