An amazing time was had by all thanks to the hard work and team effort of the magnificent PTA of Marks Gate Infants School. the heavily subserdised tickets went on sale before school broke up for the holidays. Children on the day 25th August 2016, enjoyed Bouncy castles, hot dogs and treats, lots of little inexpensive games All organised and run by PTA Members. and two wonderful fun filled exciting hours of entertainment of the circus. Well done PTA and Pam Web. We think you're AWESOME!
