Little Britain comedian and actor Matt Lucas paid a visit to a school in Stanmore of which he was a former pupil.

The funny man joined teachers and pupils from Aylward Primary School on March 26 to celebrate the opening of their new school building. He attended the school from 1979.

Matt entertained pupils at Aylward with school day stories where he said his hair promptly fell out for no reason at the age of five.

He said that this allowed him to play the parts of old men in plays and make everyone laugh and this enabled him to turn something bad into something good.

Matt said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the opening celebration and it was such a thrill to come back home to Aylward and take a tour round the amazing new building.

“It was a delight to see three of my former teachers again and to meet so many of the current staff and pupils.”

Guests were entertained by the school choir and a whole school assembly was held where Matt talked to the children.

In memory of the former school building, Aylward headteacher Clive Westhall and Year 3 teacher Mrs Rajpara suggested the pupils bury a time capsule containing Aylward memories dating back to the 1960s.

Among the many items buried were current school uniforms.

Other guests who attended included the Harrow Mayor councillor Margaret Davine, the Mayoress Marilyn Devine, Harrow East MP Bob Blackman and school governors, staff and pupils past and present.
