60 years ago Mount Everest was ascented by Hillary and Tenzing. Quainton resident, Tom Bourdillon, was part of the Team. Locals replicated the final dayâ€™s climb between Camp IX and the summit by â€˜jumaringâ€™ up the Church Tower.
Quainton School Head Peter Bird is directing a production of Lord of the Flies, featuring children from a number of Buckinghamshire schools. It will be shown at the Buckingham Festival and then up in Edinburgh.
