Fancy a Christmas Pudding?

St. John's Hospice is selling Christmas puddings.  This year, the label was designed by one of our very own pupils at Bolton-le-Sands School.  He won a district-wide competition.  So, if you fancy a Christmas Pudding this year, pop along to the Hospice Shop.  All profits are ploughed directly back into the valuable work of the hospice.

A Big Thank You

A big thank you to all of those who helped to deliver the Remembrance Day Service yesterday.  What awful weather!  However as always, the people of Bolton-le-Sands braved the rain to remember those who lost their lives in conflict.  It was lovely to see so many people turn out to take part and lay so many wreaths this year.  And a special thanks to McGaffigans who managed to create a temporary sword that looked great.
