Flagg Nursery School celebrated its 40th anniversary with a ruby fayre.

Many faces from the past and present joined in the fun.

All five headteachers, who have held the reins since 1977 attended, bringing to life the display of old photographs and press articles.

Pupils, parents and governors were among those who enjoyed the celebration.

The fayre was opened by MP Sir Patrick McLoughlin, along with the oldest and youngest residents of Flagg: Barbara Wilkinson and three-week-old Kitty Naylor.

There was also a raffle with the first prize a ruby necklace which was donated by former parent Pollyanna Stevenson. A silent auction with many prizes donated by local companies was also held.
