St. Peter and St. Paul's School Summer Fete, Eye, Suffolk - 12th July 2014

This year, Isobel is part of the "Friends of Eye" team organising the Eye School Summer Fete. It's 1940's themed and features Clive "Chickens" Stevens' WWII military vehicles and local D-Day veteran Alan King, of Stradbroke British Legion, as well as "Splat the Rat", with rat made by Fred out of an old sock. The turnout is good and the fair raises over £2,000.
