CHILDREN and staff at Mere Primary School enjoyed a trip to the pantomime last week.

The trip to see Jack and the Beanstalk at Salisbury Playhouse was organised and paid for by the Friends of Mere School who have been fundraising over the past few months to cover the cost.

Headteacher Catriona Williamson said: “The children behaved impeccably as usual and they really did us proud. It was a wonderful day for everyone involved.”
