FAMILIES and visitors of all ages gathered at a Worcester school for its annual summer fete.

More than 100 people came to Dines Green Primary School for the fete, taking part in activities including raffles, tombolas and games, as well as and an opportunity to throw wet sponges at headteacher Andrew Morley to raise money for the school.

One highlight was the ‘Dines Green Bake Off’ competition, with Councillor Richard Udall among the judges.

The winner as decided by the judges was a ‘moist and a very tasty’ Victoria sponge made by Lorna Bate, Dines Green PTA member.

The organisers of the fete are still waiting for the final total to be counted with more expected in from sales at the event.

Representatives from West Mercia Police and Herefordshire and Worcestershire Fire and Rescue Service were also there, alongside Fortis Living and other local groups.

Cllr Udall said: “It was a great afternoon, lots of fun was had, everybody enjoyed themselves and thankfully the weather stayed good for us.

“Dines Green is a strong community and events like the Summer Fete really help to bring people together.

“It was very pleasing to see so much local support for the school, it’s had difficult times but thankfully the school is now improving.

“Events like the Summer Fete have really helped to ensure the school remains at the very heart of the community.”
