FORMER headteachers and teaching staff, governors and current pupils were invited to take part in a special ceremony to mark the 50th anniversary of Tydd St Mary Primary School.

There has been a school in the village for more than 150 years but 50 years ago the pupils moved into the current school on the site of the old building.

The Archdeacon of Lincoln, the Ven Tim Barker, and the vicar of Tydd St Mary, the Rev Judith Dunkling, conducted a special service in the school.

Headteacher Sonya Ripley said: “We had displays that former pupils and governors had contributed to and a wonderful display of memorabilia in the hall and a special cake cut by the youngest and oldest pupils. Our guests were invited for cake and sparkling fizz and had a chance to look around the school and see it in action today and how it has changed since they were here.”
