THE Caribbean will be coming to Exminster on Saturday when The Manor Residential Home hosts a special themed summer fete with proceeds going to Exminster Primary School's Dyslexic Project.

The fun will get under way at 2pm and will include a coconut shy and tombola. as well as nail art, face painting and a bric-a-brac stall.

Exminster School Choir will open the event with a selection of local songs, and local bell-ringers will also perform.

The Manor is providing homemade savouries, quiches, tea and coffee, for which donations will be asked.

Numbered programmes will cost £1, and will double as entry to the raffle.

Sam Gilronan, special needs co-ordinator in charge of the project said: "We have a number of pupils who are experiencing very individual difficulties with their literacy development.

"In the past these difficulties have been supported by small groups, but individual intervention focused on their key difficulties would be a preferable way forward.

"The funding provided by The Manor, will enable us to invest in a dyslexia support programme which creates individually tailored support programmes."
