Wartime jeep and wet sponge for teachers

A SUMMER fete at Badgemore Primary School in Henley raised £1,500 for new library books.

Hundreds of people attended the event and were greeted by David Thatcher, of the Berkshire and Oxfordshire Military Vehicle Trust, and his son Josh.

The pair stood at the entrance with their 1943 Willys Jeep and a selection of US Army uniforms and equipment from the Second World War. Children were able to climb inside the vehicle.

Other attractions included fairground games such as hook-a-duck, welly wanging, a barbecue, face-painting, a bouncy castle, tombola and stalls selling cream teas and cakes, nearly-new sale toys and books. Parent Sally-Jo Pearce led a belly dancing workshop and children had the chance to soak their teachers with wet sponges.

There was also a raffle with prizes donated by Tesco, Waitrose, butcher Gabriel Machin, Lawlor’s bakery, Temptation Gifts, Henley Hair and Beauty, Henley Nails and Brows and Hare Hatch Sheeplands garden centre.
