Lewis Fowler asked people in Buckingham how they would be marking the end of 2013.
Lee Williams, 35, from Bedford said: “We have two children under the age of five and would love to go to a party but it’s not fair on the children the next day. So I think we are going to a friend’s house, who also has children and we will probably have a takeaway!”
Lindsey Batham, a 41-year-old full-time mum from Steeple Claydon said: “I don’t really celebrate New Year as it is my best friend’s birthday on the 30th so we go out that night and then recover on New Year’s Eve.”
James Rowell, a 59-year-old lecturer at the University of Buckingham, said: “For the past few years we’ve been with friends for a dinner party. So we have a few drinks and nice food before seeing the new year in.”
Alison McInnes, a 50-year-old dental hygienist from Buckingham said: “We like to spend it either by going away skiing or by being around our friends. This year we’ll be going to a party with them.”
Karen Baines, from Sweet Dreams, Buckingham said: “This year I’m going to a big party with my husband. We’ll have a meal and a few drinks, and I expect we’ll end up doing lots of dancing!”
