Batman made a dramatic appearance in an Aylesbury classroom last week. He was photographed about to escape from the manse, by our minister Rev. Helen Kirk. It was noted that he had grown a beard very similar to the one worn by Helen's husband Andrew.
His appearance coincided with last Thursday's World Book Day. This is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and of reading. Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, the event is celebrated in over 100 countries. So we are delighted that Batman supported the importance of reading and was booked to appear in Aylesbury.
