BARRINGTON School's annual fete raised £4,100 with the help of a wooden cow and an auction of promises.

This year's theme was Down on the Farm which involved farm yard games and treasure hunts, fancy dress competitions, tractors - and a cow-milking competition.

Friends of Barrington School member Sally Willan said: "Everyone involved had a wonderful day and we raised a fabulous amount of money for the school.

"The auction of promises and the cow-milking competition proved to be successful.
