Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

KyranBracken,amember of the 2003 World Cup win­ning squad and win­ner of Danc­ing on Ice in 2007, went along to Bea­cons­field High School on Satur­day to open the fair. He joined hun­dreds of pupils, par­ents and lo­cal res­i­dents at the event,which­was­sup­ported by law firm B P Collins LLP, which spon­sored the event and hosted a Christ­mas cake com­pe­ti­tion.

Le­gal part­ner Sue An­drews was tasked with se­lect­ing three cat­e­gory win­ners and an over­all cham­pion, and even­tu­ally gave the main prize to year eight pupil Mia Lyn­d­say for her en­try based on the Big Ben clock tower.

Ms An­drews said: “It was in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult to nar­row down the win­ners from such a large se­lec­tion of wor­thy en­trants.

“It was ev­i­dent that all the stu­dents had taken a great deal of time and ef­fort to pro­duce some very unique and in­tri­cate cakes and they should all be very proud of their hard work.”

The fun con­tin­ued in the can­teen where visi­tors were in­vited to sam­ple and or­der fes­tive wines and cheeses, whilst award­win­ning lo­cal butcher, HA Price were on hand to demon­strate how best to pre­pare a Christ­mas tur­key.

By the end of the day, the school had man­aged to raise £15,000 from the event, which will go to­wards im­prove­ments for the stu­dents.
