PUPILS from the past and present took the opportunity to take one last look around Littleport Community Primary School before it is demolished.

The school will move to modern, neighbouring buildings next month, and so the Littleport Society organised an event to commemorate nearly 50 years of the school's history at that site.

More than 300 people turned up to look at a photograph exhibition and a slide show.

Society chairman Grenville Goodson said: "It was lovely to see people who turned up and said it hadn't changed a bit and there was a father who showed his son the space outside the headmaster's office where he spent a lot of time."

One of the highlights was a photograph of pupils with a patchwork quilt that was made at the school's previous location in Wisted Road - a tapestry that stayed with the school when its current buildings opened in 1958.

It is hoped that a new home for the tapestry will be found at the new school.
