SINGER Kim Wilde made a surprise appearance in Welwyn Garden City to open a school fete.
The Kids in America star, from Codicote, appeared at Harwood Hill JMI and Nursery School, in Harwood Close, after flying back from a gig in Berlin.
Headteacher Phillip Gray said: “She landed, she tweeted and she came to us. In that order. She was fantastic.”
According to Mr Gray, the school had the highest amount of visitors turn up in more than five years.
“It was a great day,” Mr Gray added. “We try to make it more traditional, lots of family friendly stalls and nothing too expensive.”
Organisers managed to raise around £2,000 to go back to the school.
