Last Friday six of our students visited St Mary’s Church in Penwortham to clean up the First and Second World War graves that had unfortunately fallen into a poor condition. Armed with buckets sponges and brushes the students demonstrated a fantastic work ethic to scrub the headstones clean despite the torrential rain! Ron Drakeford, a local veteran, had noticed the poor condition of the graves when visiting them before the Remembrance weekend, and had requested help in cleaning them. The students were eager to offer their support and were a real credit to our school. An extra thoughtful touch, Isabel Wrennall placed white roses on each of the graves as an additional mark of respect.
