In the morning, groups of children, in Victorian dress, presented bunches of May flowers to many of the older generation of the village. Their mothers had sent their children into school with so many flowers that it was possible to make over 170 bunches. Each presentation was accompanied by the May Song and their best wishes for a Happy May Day.
Next it was chairs back to school, and tea and biscuits for all of the staff, school governors and everyone who had helped to make the day go so well.
Sue Spooner, Head Teacher, said: “It was an amazing day, we were so lucky with the weather. It didn’t rain until it had all finished. I’d like to thank all the mothers for sending so many flowers and for everyone who joined in with the Victorian theme by dressing up for the occasion.”
This thanks included Mr Jim Harker, chairman of the Governors, who said: “I had to raid my father’s wardrobe in Lyon’s Yard, and managed to find a very respectable 3-piece tweed suit.”
