BLAZING sunshine provided a perfect backdrop for a village school's Jubilee celebrations and created "lifelong memories" for those who attended.

A picnic in the school grounds, organised by the Friends of Chilton Foliat Primary School raised a whopping £600 for the school.

The school and village community took advantage of the glorious weather and enjoyed a fabulous line up of entertainment including live music, face painting, a traditional Punch and Judy show, dancing and craft activities.

The school and village community took advantage of the glorious weather and enjoyed a fabulous line up of entertainment including live music, face painting, a traditional Punch and Judy show, dancing and craft activities.

The cream tea boxes available during the afternoon were particularly popular and were completely sold out.

The school were decorated with the children’s handmade bunting and all present started the afternoon with a rousing rendition of the National Anthem, which the school choir had been learning in the run up to the event.

The picnic rounded off a week of Platinum Jubilee activities which saw the children exploring the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II through the lens of duty and service covering her support of charitable organisations and admiration of voluntary service, which helped the children understand the significance of the celebrations.

At the end of the afternoon, headteacher Katie Turner thanked everyone for coming and added: "Not only have we celebrated the Jubilee in style, we have also united as a whole school and village community to recognise the 70 years of service the Queen has given us and how inspirational that is for all our children.

"I'd like to thank the Friends for hosting such a memorable event, that not only raised vital funds for the school but made some lifelong memories for our families and friends.”
