The Harbour School in Wilburton began celebrating its 60th anniversary over the weekend with a summer fete.
The afternoon event, which was held on the grounds of the old manor house, offered people the opportunity to tour the site, have fun on a bouncy slide and castle, enjoy a range of BBQ food and a visit from Ely Fire Brigade, sample some sugary treats from a sweet stall and enjoy a dog agility event.
Visitors on the day were able to sit in the sun and listen to music performed by Straight Jacket, against the back drop of the old Manor House.
The event also attracted support from Wilburton Primary School and Humpty’s Nursery, who ran their own stalls.
Pam Hudson, admin assistant and medications manager at the Harbour School, Wilburton, said: “It was a lovely day where members from all over the community came together and had a lovely afternoon in the sun with many ex-members of staff reminiscing together.
“Feedback from visitors was extremely positive, with so many people enjoying the chance to have a look around our site.”
She added that the summer fete was just the first of a number of special events to mark the anniversary.
