IT seems like an age gone by when we could all go out and party in public, so we thought we would remind you of good times past.

The St Laurence School street party in Bradford on Avon would have been in its 17th year this year, and historically it has seen revellers turn out in their hundreds to hear live music on two stages and a range of street entertainment.

The event is run by the St Laurence School Association to raise money for school projects, and over the years, students from its four houses have run a coconut shy, a rowing challenge, a treasure trail and a tombola, while others go out collecting money.

Stalls have been manned by students raising funds for a sister school in India, and for trips to Gambia where students will do community work in a small town.

Held on Church Street, the party includes space for many stalls run by local groups and charities. Previous fundraising efforts have helped provide maths block projectors, the restaurant canopy, music workshops, DofE outdoor expedition tents, food processors and haze machines for drama productions.
