A SAFFRON Walden school's Country Fair proved to be a record-breaking success after raising over �4000 towards its coffers.
Hundreds of children and their families attended the RA Butler School's annual event.
With dance displays, children's five-a-side football tournament and lots of stalls, there was plenty to keep both children and parents entertained.
The pupils of the schools played a large part in the fair; many of them had grown plants to sell, and the older children ran stalls and games including beat the goalie, tattoo mania and crazy bowling.
