YOUNGSTERS enjoyed an afternoon at Clavering Primary School's Summer Fete, which raised £1000 for new play equipment.

The annual event held last Saturday was organised by the PTA and co-chair Debbie Crace-Eales. She said: "There was a brilliant turn out for the fete and the sun even shone for us.

"The children enjoyed themselves immensely, with activities including the wet sponge stocks and a safari run bouncy castle both proving extremely popular.

"We also had a raffle and a tombola, which contributed to the fund-raising effort, and a barbecue provided much needed sustenance."

The Friends of Clavering School's Lydia Oakes said: "The money will go towards buying some new toys and helping stock up the Healthy Tuck Shop.

"The shop sells fruit, and occasionally home-made cakes, at break times and is run very successfully by the school council which has representatives from every year group on it.
