Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
