Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

STAFF at a pri­mary school are ap­peal­ing to past stu­dents and teach­ers for help as it ap­proaches its 50th birth­day.

Marl­bor­ough Pri­mary School, on Tyther­ing­ton Drive, will reach its land­mark an­niver­sary in May. To cel­e­brate the school is open­ing its ‘Fes­ti­val on The Field’ event up to the whole com­mu­nity.

It will in­clude per­for­mances by the chil­dren, an ex­hi­bi­tion of how Marl­bor­ough has evolved through the decades, a bbq and re­fresh­ments.

An­to­nia Pol­lard, cler­i­cal as­sis­tant at the school, is ap­peal­ing on be­half of the school for past par­ents, teach­ers and pupils to share their mem­o­ries, pho­to­graphs and para­pher­na­lia col­lected over the years.

She said: “This year, the theme for the Fes­ti­val is “50 years of Marl­bor­ough” and we would like to open the event to the whole of our com­mu­nity.

“We would like to ap­peal to past Marl­bor­ough fam­i­lies to send in any mem­o­ra­bilia they have of the school no mat­ter how old or how re­cent; we would love to dis­play it all!

“To fin­ish off the fes­tiv­i­ties, we will have a range of ac­tiv­i­ties themed across the decades for ev­ery­body to en­joy.

“Vis­i­tors will be able to pur­chase re­fresh­ments in­clud­ing a BBQ and our fa­mous choco­late crunch. Please help us to cel­e­brate this mile­stone by join­ing us for this event and send­ing any pho­tos or mem­o­ra­bilia you have to Marl­bor­ough Pri­mary School ei­ther by post or drop it off at the school of­fice (please en­sure you put your name and a con­tact num­ber on any item you send in so that we can re­turn it to you af­ter­wards).”

The event is on May 19th on the school field and starts at 1.30pm. Please bring your own camp­ing chairs or pic­nic blan­kets to sit on. To find out more call 01625 466414.

Old pho­to­graphs from the 1960s, 70s and 80s will go on dis­paly dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion
