Children at Carlton Colville Primary School had a whale of a time as they enjoyed their summer fete.

Pupils enjoyed the warm sunny weather by taking part in a range of fun activities in the school grounds, including a 'splat the rat' game, penalty shoot-outs, a bouncy castle, swing rides and bowling.

There were also a variety of stalls and a raffle and tombola on offer for parents.

The summer fete was the second held since the school moved to its current site in Gisleham Road as part of Suffolk County Council's controversial reorganisation of education in the Lowestoft area.

It was one of several events organised to help raise funds for the school, which is looking to purchase a new swimming pool cover, refurbish its library, and add new markings to its play area.

Teacher Beth Palmer, who helped organise the fete, said it had raised about £1,000.

'There was a lot going on,' she said. 'It was a great day. It all went really well and we had beautiful weather.'
