THE fete at Marshland St James Primary School was "absolutely amazing," said head teacher Sheila Day, who spent some of the afternoon in the stocks, being pelted with sponges.
"The Friends of the School Association did a marvellous job, raising more than �1,000."
A fancy dress competition was one highlight of the afternoon. Harry Cozens, who dressed as a sweep, took top prize in the over 6's age group, and tin man Luke Hayes won the top prize for the under 6's.
Head teacher Mrs Day was joined in the stocks by caretaker Colin Bartram during the afternoon. Other attractions included a barbecue and cream teams, quad bikes, welly wanging, beat the goalie, a cake stall, and various other competitions and stalls.

Members of the neighbourhood policing team were also available to chat to residents during the event on Saturday.
Some of the money raised from the fete will help fund the pupils' trip to the pantomime at Hunstanton this Christmas.
