THOUSANDS of pounds were raised in a summer music festival at a Northwich village.

Around 500 people enjoyed jazz, brass and song at Comberfest,which raised £3,600 for Comberbach Primary School.

Organiser Alison Brennan said: "It went really really well and everyone's said how much they enjoyed it.

"To raise that much is a significant amount for a local school."

The event was opened by headteacher Rob Cooper and featured performances from school musicians and the school choir, jazz quartet No Room to Parachute, brass quartet Delta Bass, West End actress Tracy Spencer Jones and north west band Champagne Skies.

There were games and activities for families, a raffle and camping on the school field.

Alison said: "They've always had a party in the playground with a band or a DJ but decided to do it a bit differently this time."

The community rallied together to help make Comberfest a success, with the village hall, fete committee, Knutsford Rugby Club and the memorial hall lending items like marquees and tables for the event.

Alison said: "If you want that community feel then this is the type of thing that helps to create it."
