Spalding Grammar School will mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War with a summer fete in the authentic style of one that might have been held in the summer of 1914.

The mood will be euphoric rather than sombre, although there will be a solemn ceremony at the close with the dedication of a new memorial to 22 former pupils killed in the trenches.

Students are researching the lives of the ex-pupils who died and are keen to hear from families who can provide further information and perhaps photographs.
