AS part of the national Summer Reading Scheme, Buckingham Library held a fancy dress party last week based on this year’s theme of The Circus.

Library manager Steph Gassor said: “The children all turned up in some wonderful outfits and with some great make-up on too.

“Mums had worked hard to create some lovely costumes. We had a selection of colourful clowns, glorious geishas, fantastic fairies and terrific trapeze artists.”

Buckingham mayor Mike Smith was the judge and awarded prizes to the winners – Daniel Fox, aged nine, Alyssa Dench, aged four, and Olivia Dench, aged 18 months.

A treasure hunt, biscuits and squash ended the afternoon.
