ST GEORGE'S Day was celebrated across the borough with traditional English tea parties and fancy dress events.

Youngsters from St George's Day Primary School, in Tylney Road, Bickley garbed themselves in red and white to mark the occasion last Friday.

They had a full English breakfast cooked by the staff and the children acted out the legend of George and the dragon.

Head teacher Val Carrier said: "It was a fantastic atmosphere. The little five-year-olds doing the play was the most special event of the day, it was a magical moment. "

Meanwhile more than 40 people packed into The Croft Tea Room in High Street, St Mary Cray, to sample traditional English food.

Owner of the community café, Carole Wells, said: "The tea room was full. The event went brilliantly. There was smoked salmon, Kentish cheese, rape seed oil and loads more. It was such a success on Friday that we ran it again on Saturday. We also had Hommity pie, a very English recipe."

The Croft Tea Room was started by Carole Wells in November to promote local produce and good home cooking.
