They arrived in London, having eaten a picnic breakfast en-route.  They were given a tour of the House of Commons and the House of Lords.  A workshop followed where the children had to pretend to pass a bill through the different Houses of Parliament.  After lunch, they all got back on the bus and headed home.  

It really was a fantastic trip and one that the children will remember for a very long time. 

The annual Carols by Candlelight was a magical evening held by School and Village Community.  There wasn't a dry eye in chirch as the Foundation Children presented the tableaux.  Villagers read the readings and the children told the Christmas story.  The singing as always was beautiful and a great start to the Christmas festivities.
