School might be almost out for summer but families went back there for some summertime fun in the Sprowston sun to help boost a charity that supports people with a life-limiting inherited condition.
Sprowston Community High School hosted a family fun day with proceeds from the event going to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
People of all ages were drawn to the Cannerby Lane-based school to sample the carnival atmosphere at Saturday's event which had more than 130 stalls, activities, food, drink and a variety of entertainment.
As well as bouncy castles, play areas, dance troupes performing and characters from the Marvel and Star Wars universe, there was also a magician show, birds of prey, ice cream, beer tent, Viking and Saxon camp and display as well as a huge indoor craft and gift fair with more than 50 stalls.
Jason Trattles, 30, from Angel Road, and his wife Vicky and children Saul, 10 and Maria, five, were at the event.
He said: 'I thought it was really good. It was bigger than I thought – lots of really good stalls.
'I really enjoyed it. I thought it was one of the best fetes I had been to. The kids seemed to be happy with it all which was good. It's been really, really good and the food has been excellent as well.'
