The event at Ashcombe Primary School in Earlham Grove coincided with the United States of America’s Independence Day.

It was organised by the Ashcombe Friends Association, and raised a sizable sum of about £4,000 towards school funds.

There were a number of games, including hook-a-duck and splat-the-rat, while people could try their luck on the raffle and tombola.

There was also a barbecue and RNLI crews talked to people about their life-saving role.
