DENNIS The Menace, Batman and Minnie Mouse were some of the characters that could be found at Chyngton School as pupils celebrated World Book Day.

Children dressed as their favourite book character to mark the occasion and enjoyed a visit from local author Giles Paley-Phillips. A book swap also took place and pupils sold cakes to raise funds for the charity Book Aid. Down the road at Alfriston School children also dressed the part.

The bookshop in the village Much Ado Books donated some books that the children were able to purchase using their £1 World Book Day vouchers. The school’s PTFA also ran a book swap and cake sale.
