A CLIMBING wall for children can go ahead after £2,623 was raised in a celebration of everything vintage.

The cash was raised at St Anthony’s School to build the wall in the sports hall.

The Chichester school hosted a vintage fete and classic car show in Woodlands Lane on Saturday (June 21).

“It was absolutely brilliant – it was one of the best ones we’ve done,” said Sandra Evans, of Parents and Friends of St Anthony’s School, who is also an IT technician at the school.

“The weather was lovely. It was just a really nice atmosphere.

“The music was good – we had someone playing 50s and 60s music and people were bobbing along to it.”

The school, which has special school status, has held an annual fete for several years but this was the first vintage-themed one.

Around 30 cars were on display as well to wow visitors, with fellow organiser Richard Armstead saying: “I’m getting emails from some of the people who had classic cars there saying ‘wonderful day, book me in next year please’.”

The classic cars first appealed at the fete last year, with around 15 turning up but there were more than 30 on Saturday.

Cars from several eras were present, including a 1963 Vanden Plas Princess 3L and a 1939 Lagonda LG6.
