Hot Air Balloon

20th May 2019

On 20th of May children and adults at Tredington Primary were thrilled to welcome a hot air balloon with the pilots to school.  We were blessed with perfect weather conditions which allowed our aeronautical visitors to inflate the balloon on the school field -  much to the excitement and amazement of all. After this, adults who wished were allowed a taste of hot air ballooning, experiencing carefully controlled rides with the balloon firmly tethered to the ground after which the balloon was stowed away and children were able to climb into the basket and imagine flying high in the sky.

This unusual event was part of the build up to the Cheltenham Balloon Fiesta – a very special experience for us all.
