Staff and pupils at Whaplode Church of England Primary School were delighted by the community’s response to their first farmers’ market.

The market was held in the school grounds earlier on in the summer.

The market was organised as part of the school’s ‘Unity in the community’ week, which involved all classes taking part in a variety of community-based activities. These included a tea party organised by Year 6 pupils.

A wide variety of local stall holders came along for the afternoon to sell their products, including plants, vegetables, crafts and natural beauty products.

Each class in school also had their own stall selling products they had made during the week. Sainsbury’s Spalding store joined in with a range of products they sell.

Headteacher Alison Flack was delighted by the response of children, parents and the local community, saying it had been “overwhelming”.
