DALEKS in­vaded Chal­font St Peter on Fri­day – but they came with Christ­mas spirit rather than to ex­ter­mi­nate.

They were among the colour­ful char­ac­ters on show at the an­nual vil­lage Christ­mas event.

Oth­ers in­cluded a skele­tal Santa and lots of Christ­mas elves.

Crowds flocked to the vil­lage cen­tre for the an­nual event and en­joyed singing from the pupils of Lovel End, Robertswood, St Joseph’s, Com­mu­nity Col­lege and Thorpe House schools.

The Chal­font Wind Band and the Ac­cord Choir also pro­vided some mu­si­cal in­ter­ludes.

There were plenty of fes­tive treats to try, fair­ground rides to enjoy and Santa to see, as well as a va­ri­ety of stalls to browse.

Mike Day, a mem­ber of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, said the evening had been a great suc­cess.

He said: “The weather was warm and dry and there were big crowds and ex­cel­lent en­ter­tain­ment.

“We had a few kid­dies rides and stalls in Mar­ket Place and the ma­jor­ity of shops opened and were in a fes­tive mood.

“Our thanks go to all our vol­un­teers for their sup­port and help. All in all it was a great suc­cess.”
