Pictured first is World Cup 2010 final referee Howard Webb at Church Lane School, Sleaford officially opening its new early years base and garden.

Howard was at the school through his friendship with headteacher Helen Fulcher (also a referee).

She said: “He is a school governor of his own children’s school and is always very interested in primary schools so I asked him to come along.
