A sweet trip to the sea­side

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

REV­ELLERS en­joyed a trip to the sea­side with­out even leav­ing Chal­font St Peter last week­end.

WELSH don­keys and a Punch and Judy show sounds like the be­gin­ning of a film, but for one vil­lage these were just two of the many ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer at a sum­mer sea­side fete.

Chal­font St Peter Montes­sori School held the event on Sun­day (June 14) at the Me­mo­rial Cen­tre, East Com­mon, Ger­rards Cross, which also raised £1500 for the Mon­te­sorri PTA.

Fiona Bul­li­vant, a teacher at the school, said: “The weather turned out bril­liantly. We had the don­key rides which went down very well.”

She said she was “re­ally pleased” with the to­tal raised as the money goes to­wards equip­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties for the chil­dren.

Mrs Bul­li­vant added: “I think the high­light was the don­keys and the Punch and Judy be­cause it’s some­thing the chil­dren don’t see that of­ten.

“The look of de­light when they were rid­ing around on the don­key.”
