Daleks cannot exterminate the village’s Christmas spirit
Visitors from Doctor Who one of the highlights of festive event
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.”
