Altmore Infant and Junior Schools, both on Altmore Avenue, East Ham, got together with children at neighbouring Lathom Junior School, on Lathom Road, to hold a big summer bash on Friday.

The day was themed to resemble a traditional English tea party with plenty of cake to go round with a little help from local bakers.

A branch of Greggs on High Street North donated 100 cakes while Cakes & Bakes on Ilford High Street also gave 100 portions of eggless cakes to the tea stall.

London City Airport also donated a raffle prize while children and parents took part in donkey rides, met a Pearly royalty, and tried their luck at the coconut shy.
