Buxton celebrates the Royal Wedding
Hundreds of people came together to celebrate the Royal Wedding in the village of Buxton.
On Saturday there were stalls, sports and games on the village recreation ground, singing by children from Buxton Primary School and from 1st Buxton Cub Scouts in the parish church, a bring and share tea in the school and, eventually, a raffle drawn at the end of the day in the village hall.
One of the organisers, the Rev. Peter Hansell, said: 'The idea was to make it a community celebration that brought people from different organisations together and it was was really successful.
'We held the event the day after the Royal Wedding so people could watch it at home and then come together as a community on Saturday.'
After the children's singing in a packed St Andrew's Church, Rev Hansell paid special tribute to the school's head teacher, Deborah Leahy, for the school's 'magnificent' support for the event and for the large part played by the schoolchildren in the day.

Mr Hansell said whilst the stalls and raffle generated profit for various organisations, the day was more about community than raising funds.
