CHILDREN laughing, tombolas and cream teas - the hallmarks of a fun day and fair.

All these were evident at the Drake's Primary School May Day parade, held on Monday.

The event started with a parade from East Budleigh to the village hall and concluded with a fair.

School teacher Sarah Davie said it was an enjoyable day.

She added: "The children enjoyed dancing and the event acted as a fundraiser for the Parent and Teachers and Friends' Association."

Sarah said the May queen was carried through the town on a pony and trap. The queen is the oldest girl in year six at the school and was crowned by Rev Janice Cackett.
