Brookmans Park came out in force for a "movie magic"-themed annual village day on Saturday.

Sponsored by Statons Estate Agents, the Brookmans Park Primary PTA’s 59th event brought the whole village together, with fairground rides, stalls, inflatables and a talent show sponsored by David Lloyd.

The takings have not all been counted, but the auction alone - including signed Spurs and Arsenal shirts - raised almost £4,000 for the school.

Headteacher Aileen Davies gave a “very special” thanks to PTA chair Helen Coffer, who is leaving after 10 years working on the village day.

Mrs Davies said: “We will all miss her endless energy and constant enthusiasm to organise amazing events.

“In this day and age schools rely on their PTA to bring extra money in to buy essential educational resources, and at Brookmans Park we have been truly lucky to have had Helen doing a sterling job of this!”
