Festive fun for everyone
THOUSANDS, including Petra Spretkova with daughter Tereza, aged four, enjoyed Chalfont St. Peter Fun Night on Friday evening and our photographer was there to capture all the action.
CROWDS showed their festive spirit at a village’s successful Christmas celebration. Schools, bands, carol singers and traders attended Chalfont St Peter Christmas Fun Night on Friday last week.
Event organiser Feast of St Peter, which also runs summer fayre Feast Day at Gold Hill Common, invited 40 stalls providing Christmas gifts, food and drinks and games in Market Place as well as a children’s fun fair at St Peter’s Court precinct.
Feast of St Peter committee member, Michael Day, said: “It is difficult to estimate the numbers but we had several thousand people there.
“I would like to thank the stall holders, the fun fair, the entertainers and particularly the volunteers, without whom we would have had to have stewards for the event, but most of all I would like to thanks the public who came out to support it.
“We are lucky in Chalfont St Peter to have two fantastic events, one in the summer and one at this time of the year.” Carol singers from Thorpe House School, Robertswood School, Chalfont St Peter Infant School, St Joseph’s School and Chalfonts Community College entertained the crowds.
There were also performances from Spotlight Musical Theatre, Gold Hill Vocal Band and the Chalfont Wind Band. All proceeds go to village good causes.
