Primary schools feature, with the retirement of Bob Fish from the headship at St Martin’s Primary School, Owston Ferry, 12 years ago, along with their 2006 Christmas drama production ‘It’s a Baby’.

St Martin’s pupils are seen with Paul Jacques and Richard Tune that year, as the men take donated football shirts to Africa, in a car rally.

There’s a Lifestyle group presenting a cheque to the Old Smithy, and four motorbike riders who raised cash for children of Chernobyl.

West Butterwick Primary School children are seen in the Tesco Great Schools’ Fun Run, and slogging it out in the sack race at their sports day.
