Downham runners sweep the board

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


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.”
