PARENTS and staff re-lived their youth when they dressed in school uniforms for a fundraising disco.
The event was held in aid of the Chesterfords Pre School and was the perfect opportunity for adults to don school uniforms, PE kits and mortarboards.
A pre-disco exam, which was set and invigilated by local quizmaster Alan Catley, kicked off the evening of back-to-school entertainment.
Also helping the school to raise money, a Christmas craft afternoon was held which gave the children the opportunity to get messy and show their creative flair.
