Pupils and staff organised a fantastic community event, supported by the Big Lottery Fund. Residents of the village, pupils from other local schools and members of the community visited the school and enjoyed a range of activities. The Mayor Martin Wrigley was also a special guest at the event.
Even in the pouring rain, the children performed songs and dances under the gazebos, and then visitors could enjoy a lovely fair trade cafe with superb cream teas and take part in some fair trade games and competitions. They also had the opportunity to read with the children, learn the guitar and practise their cross stitch.
