Fond Farewell

Mrs Brocklebank and Mrs Midgley, long-serving staff members of our local Primary School will be retiring at the end of next week along with Mr Dixon, the Site Supervisor.  It will seem strange next term for all those who knew these members of staff as they will be really missed.  Thank you to you all for your long service to the school and to all the children whom you have seen come and go and have helped along the way.

St John's Hospice Presentation

A group of Year 6 girls from our local Primary School, and their families, raised funds for St John's Hospice during the Evening of Family Fun. The girls raised around £350 - a fabulous effort!
