Past pupils, staff and their families joined Steeple Morden C of E Primary School on Saturday at their annual school fete to bid a fond farewell to headteacher Richard Lloyd, who is leaving after more than a decade at the school.

South Cambs MP Heidi Allen judged the fancy dress competition and entertainment was provided by the Morden Magpies Football Club, Steeple Morden’s Hot Steps Dance Academy and the Ashwell Karate Club.

Mr Lloyd said: “The annual school fete is always well supported by local families as well as the wider community and businesses and it was fantastic to see so many past pupils attending Saturday’s event.”

Mrs Allen said: “It’s always lovely to be asked to judge competitions at village fetes, and an absolute bonus when I don’t make any of the children cry! “Congratulations to everyone involved with organising this year’s fete. their hard work has been rewarded with an impressive result - well done.”

The fete raised £4,000, and these funds will be used to “enhance the school experience of all the pupils”.

Staff and pupils are looking forward to welcoming the newly-appointed headteacher Tracey How, who will start at the Hay Street school in September.
