Please sir, where do we park our donkeys?

Most schools have cars outside their gates. But at Kibworth Primary School last week, parents might have been surprised to see a couple of donkeys.

The donkeys were taking a young “Mary” (seven-year-old Sydney Gowing) and “Joseph” (Max Mciver, also seven) to an Advent service at the nearby St Wilfrid’s Church.
