SUNSHINE, sweets and rock and roll, were on offer at the Helena Romanes 'H2006' Barbecue and Rock Concert last Saturday.
H2006 - a play on the national festival V2006 - was organised by the parent teacher association, 'Friends of Helena Romanes School' and more than 100 people attended the event, held as a thank you to the children for all their hard work and fund-raising.
Claire Morton, a member of the Friends of Helena Romanes School, said: "Last year we held a fete, which didn't go down too well.
"A lot of children thought they were too old and didn't come along, so this year we asked the kids what they would like."
"A lot of the children were in bands but had nowhere to play to their fans. So we came up with the idea of our very own rock concert, V2006 but on a much smaller scale!"
The group hired a Monster-Box bus, a double decker bus, with a fully equipped stage.

The concert was also held as a double celebration for Helena Romanes, as it has been granted specialist school status in humanities.
It is now the only school in the Uttlesford area and one of only five schools in the country to have successfully achieved this particular status.
