A Hitchin school’s summer fête broke all manner of records at the weekend.
William Ransom Primary School in Stuart Drive held its annual summer fête on Saturday.
Hundreds turned out for the event, with busy queues for the barbecue, cake stalls, face painting, hoopla and inflatables.
They were joined by two alpacas, rabbits, a goat and two emus which all the children – and adults – thoroughly enjoyed.
Chris Stokes, from the William Ransom School and Parents’ Association, said: “Wow, what a successful fête.

“We had a record number of people attend, and a record profit in excess of £6,000.
“The success of this fete and the scale of the event can only happen with the support of parents and friends of the school.
