Last week, Dan was on hand to present awards at the ‘Summer Sizzler’ fete held at Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School in Debenham. The annual summer fete is organised by the Friends of Sir Robert Hitcham School, a local charity which holds events for the benefit of the community and raises funds for the children of the Primary School. This year, all of the proceeds raised on the evening will go towards the purchase of new ICT equipment for the school, after a £1,000 education bursary for computer science was recently given by the British Computer Society, which will be used to set up an after school computer programming club at the school.
A range of activities provided the entertainment at the fete, from quad bikes to a family disco, fun races and a tug of war. Dan was delighted to see so many people, of all ages, enjoying themselves at the fete and would like to thank Head Teacher Jane Taylor for showing him around the activities and stalls. He very much looks forward to visiting again next year.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
