It was very well attended and feedback from both visitors and stallholders was positive.
The event raised a total of £872 for the PTA, through stallholders' fees, refreshments and the raffle.
The funds will be ploughed back into the school.
Ian Louch, chairman of the PTA, said: "We are thrilled with how well the event went. Everyone really enjoyed it, from guests to stallholders. We'll certainly be running it again next year."
The PTA wasn't the only group fund-raising on the day, with Year 12 students braving the miserable weather to organise a barbecue and car wash in order to raise money for their project this summer in Mwanza, Tanzania.
The group will be spending three weeks in Mwanza, working to refurbish the community’s only school, Gedeli School, which has 1,300 students and just five classrooms.
