KATE Middleton may be getting pre-wedding nerves but children at a Handbridge school are already in party mood.
The youngsters, from Overleigh St Mary’s CE Primary School, dressed in red, white and blue for a party to celebrate the forthcoming nuptials of Prince William to his bride Catherine on April 29.
The PTA organised the event for all children attending the school and their families.
The afternoon started with a commemorative photograph of the children creating the Union Jack flag on the school field.
They were then all given Union Jack goodie boxes full of royal treats before enjoying an afternoon of entertainment with magicians, street entertainers, hoola hooping, a drummer, dancers, a giant king and even a fire engine.
The playground was decorated with colourful bunting and families enjoyed face painting, royal themed crafts, popcorn, candy floss and plenty of food and drink.
Chairman of the PTA James Bailey said: “It really was a most magical day, one to be cherished and remembered by all who attended, but especially the children.
“So a special thank you to Prince William and Kate, for without the Royal couple we would never have organised this event and enjoyed such a lovely day.”
The PTA is grateful to the many parents who helped on the day and made donations of food and drink as well as organisations including Bunting Queen, West Cheshire College, Chester Catholic High School, Queens Park High School, Dave Williams Photography, First Capital Cashflow, Jon Whiteley Transport and Westminster Park Co-op.
All children at the school will receive a copy of the flag photo as a special memory of the event.
