Hundreds of youngsters enjoyed throwing sponges at their teachers, playing the human fruit machine and watching pig racing at Sidbury Village Fete.

There were lots of smiles and laughter at the event, which raised about £3,500 and was held at the village’s primary school last Saturday (June 16).

Children and adults had a whale of a time enjoying traditional fun and browsing the many stalls offering everything from clothes to toys.

The WI served afternoon tea in the village hall and there were ice-creams and a barbecue on the school field.

The money made at the fete has been split between Sidbury Primary School and St Giles’ Church.

Charlotte Hill, headteacher, said: “A big thank you to everybody who helped with the day. It was a really well attended village event.

“About 350 people came through the gate. It was a lovely afternoon and everyone had a great time.”
