TWO Frome seven-year-olds will not forget the night Jenson Button came to Frome.
Lucky St John's School pupil Edward Bucklow got the chance of a lifetime when he went to take a look at his car at the Cheese and Grain after school last Friday night.
A big Jenson fan, Edward not only got to see the car, he was able to sit in it and get an explanation of all the controls from one of the McClaren team.
His mum Sue said: "For once he was speechless."
Elsewhere, Marcus Smith was standing in the crowd among thousands of people when Jenson handed him his driving glove.
His mum Emma Smith described it as an amazing evening.
She said: "The whole event was second to none, it has made Marcus' year, he couldn't be happier."
