THE incredible Flackwell Heath community raised more than £900 under a relentless downpour in aid of the Juniper Hill music building.

Overlooked by soggy maps, spirits remained undampened, as locals conjured a show of heart-warming solidarity for their school's music facility.

A hearty cheer was reserved for residents of 13 Churchill Close, chosen as the community's favourite display and earning the family a well-deserved Amazon voucher.

The event saw a variety of prizes awarded, including Lucy from Desserts at The Works, Richard who has a Daisy Gift Shop voucher coming his way, Tony Owen who won Halloween cupcakes, Abbe Rose the recipient of a celebration balloon display and Sarah who nabbed a bottle of prosecco.

Special thanks went to The Cherry Tree High Wycombe for its sponsorship and kind hospitality, to Sissy Events for their chilling balloon displays, and to Daisy Gift Shop for an enchanting annual sales effort.

Zoe Bourn who organised it said: "This is the fourth year of our village Halloween trail and it gets better every year!

"The torrential rain didn’t put our families off and they came out and filled the streets with fun! Our volunteer houses who create the displays are always so excited and creative with their ideas.

"Selling the maps for a small amount per child makes the experience accessible for the whole family to enjoy together - and it has enabled us to raise just over £900 towards the new music building at Juniper Hill.

"We were lucky enough to have fantastic support from The Cherry Tree who sponsored the event and hosted the end of the trail and Daisy Gift Shop who sold the maps for us.

"It is the best example of how brilliant our community are when we come together. Thank you everyone!"
