Walking around Holmbury St Mary last month, you may have spotted Winston Churchill mingling among air force officers and their glamorous girls - oh, and the small matter of a tank parked outside the school.


This wasnt a war cabinet, despite the eerie air-raid siren that could be heard around the village, guests were instead attending a charity fundraiser at Belmont School to raise funds for CHASE hospice care for children in Guildford.
