WE ALL know Bucks vil­lagers are a hardy lot and a bit of rain won’t stop them hav­ing a good time.

And that was just the case for at­ten­dees at the Chal­font St Giles BAT Fest, which took place on Sun­day, on the vil­lage green.

The third BAT Fest, or­gan­ised by Busi­ness and Traders for Chal­font St Giles (BAT4CSG), started at noon, ran through the af­ter­noon, and closed at about 6pm.

Garry Brown, chair­man of BAT4CSG, said: “It was re­ally bril­liant, it was great.

“I en­joyed it and I think most peo­ple en­joyed it.

“There was a bit of a del­uge though, it was re­ally a down­pour. I re­mained damp for the rest of the day.

“We prob­a­bly had a cou­ple of thou­sand peo­ple but that’s to be con­firmed.

“We couldn’t have im­proved on it, it was re­ally, re­ally good.

“We would love to thank the vil­lagers for com­ing and sup­port­ing us.”
