After a beautiful sunny morning, the weather gradually deteriorated on Saturday afternoon, ultimately delivering a cold and very wet evening that might have put lesser mortals off visiting the annual fireworks display at Haddenham St Mary's CE School.

But we Brits are a stoical lot!

A committed team of PTA volunteers, school staff and Rotary members donned their warmest clothing and ensured that the show went on, as everyone hoped.

Despite feeling somewhat damp and chilled, a large audience filled the school grounds and enjoyed a wonderful fireworks display.

Here's hoping for better weather next year!
