Fun for all the family is promised this weekend as a special anniversary is marked.

Saint Felix School in Reydon, near Southwold, is celebrating its 120th anniversary – and this Saturday, May 6 the school is hosting a May fayre.

For its first May fayre since headmaster James Harrison was appointed last September, the school's PTA has organised a host of attractions and entertainment as part of a family fun day, with the added opportunity of exploring the grounds and buildings to see how the school has developed and expanded over the years.

From noon to 5pm, refreshments – including cream teas and a hog roast – will be on offer as well as activities for all the family. Visitors can try their hand at archery, shooting or rugby, or watch the U7's five-a-side football tournament and tennis matches that take place throughout the day. There are plenty of other displays and activities to enjoy with a craft fair, dog agility course, zorbing and performances from River 100 folk band and the Foolhardy Circus.

The May fayre coincides with the school's Spring open morning, which is held from 10am to noon on Saturday, as visitors are invited to take an informal tour around the school and get involved with interactive cookery demonstrations, listen to a performance from the school choir and Southwold Choral Society, and see some of the facilities.
