Families braved severe rainfall, flooding and road closures to gather at Millom Infants’ School for the annual fair on Saturday.

Children had their faces painted, enjoyed Santa’s Grotto and the cakes on offer. There was also a raffle. The money will be put into the Lapstone Road school’s fund.

Headteacher of the school, Pauline Lambert said: “Everyone had a brilliant time.

“It was well supported considering the weather.

“We are very lucky that all our children and all but two members of staff live in Millom and could come.

“I want to thank the parents who supported the Christmas fair.

“ It wasn't just parents, it was other members of the community too, thank you.”

The floods forced the closure of Duddon Bridge, on the A595, Holmrook bridge, and partially blocked Wainsgate bridge in Haverigg.
