CROSS country stars from Little Downham Feoffees swept the board at an inter-schools competition held recently.

Schools

The event, held at Ely College and organised by the Witchford School Sports Partnership, saw pupils representing schools from across the district competing in teams in a cross country event.

Downham Feoffees sent 35 Year 5 and 6 children to the event, they were split into four teams and all of them were placed in the top four.

Rebecca Villis and Tyler Howe finished first overall.

“For such a small school we did really well”, said headteacher Sue Coppolaro. “We were absolutely delighted and so were Rebecca and Tyler.”
