Somerleyton Primary School, in The Street, held its secret garden themed fete on Saturday, July 8.

Guests were entertained by live music, craft stalls and donkey rides and over 800 burgers and hotdogs were sold.

Louise Spall, headteacher, said: “All headteachers know the restraints we work under with budget pressures so any additional funds are a wonderful bonus.

“The money is used to enhance music provision and help pay for trips to support the curriculum.”

She added: “The fete is testament to how working together as a community can benefit everyone. I would like to say a sincere thank you to the PTFA who have astonished everyone creating the best summer fete on record.

“I would also like to say a special thank you Lord Somerleyton for opening the fete and to Somerleyton Estates for generously donating to the barbecue and the raffle.”
