Some of St Neots's older residents enjoyed a two-hour tea party thanks to the efforts of a group of 11 and 12 year olds, who organised and funded the event.

The Year Seven pupils at St Neots Community College also provided the entertainment and cared for their guests.

More than 70 people from the four senior citizen day centres nearby were invited to the college to enjoy the party, which also included bingo and a raffle.

All the funds for the event were raised by pupils through a lunchtime bazaar, which raised almost £200, and sponsored events.

Mary Wilcox, head of Year Seven, said: "From all that I saw and heard and the feedback I've received it was clear that our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

"The success of the tea party was entirely due to the hard work, enthusiasm and excellent planning and organisation demonstrated by our students.
