Buckingham town centre was packed on Saturday as more than 40 floats took part in the Christmas Parade.

Thousands flocked to see the highlight of Buckingham’s Christmas calendar, which this year was based around the theme ‘A Child’s Christmas’. The floats also competed for the Best Float Award.

Some stand out contenders from the junior float category were Field House Day Nursery and Maids Morton Scouts but it was Maids Moreton Pre-School that won.

In the junior walking category, Project Street Life and Bourton Meadow School impressed with Buckingham Rainbows winning.

The title of overall best float went to the 2nd Buckingham Guides, while the adult float award went to Buckingham Library. The winner of the adult walking category was St Edmunds Church.

The winner of the best shop window was Finca El Monte with Pasha and Willen Hospice in joint second place.

The competition was judged by Buckingham and Winslow MP John Bercow, Lionel Weston and Deborah Last.

District and town councillor Howard Mordue said: “There was a great atmosphere at the Christmas Parade and next year will be even better because it marks the 30th anniversary of the parade.”

Town councillor Robin Stuchbury added: “The event was a resounding success. I would like to thank town council staff for volunteering to steward the event.”

The Christmas Parade is sponsored by Buckingham Town Council who fund the parade committee.
