Organisers reception teacher Jasmine Kovacs and family support worker Jess Adams said they were delighted with how the fete went and it was great for community spirit.

The event included Mario's ice cream van, performances from students at Kingsthorpe College, Year 6 ran their enterprise week and the school caretaker, Antony Church, was a superstar in joining the wet sponge stall.

Miss Kovacs said: "We have all worked together to ensure that our fete is a great success. Local businesses, in Kingsthorpe, have donated to the raffle and our fantastic parents have volunteered their time to run stalls, buy prizes and raise money for our school.
