Mayoral Briefings with Cllr Neil Furey
ON TUESDAY, July 11 my wife and I attended a performance of Little Red Riding Hood by Year 6 pupils at St Edmunds School In Skelmersdale.
The children and staff put on a wonderful panto and we had a very enjoyable evening. Well done to all the children and staff.
On Wednesday we attended an art exhibition at Newburgh School.
Many hours of work had been put into displaying the children’s artwork and we were very impressed with the standard of work and different ideas.
I applaud the school for such a great exhibition.
Later in the evening we hosted a civic reception at the council offices for Kelly Shirley School of Dance, Burscough.
This was to congratulate them for representing Team England and winning several finals at the Dance World Cup in Germany.
We had a lovely time and it was great to meet the dancers and congratulate them on their fantastic achievements.
On Monday, we went to Tarleton Bowling Club for a Giant Story competition evening organised by the Friends of Tarleton Library. Hundreds of stories had been submitted by local schoolchildren and it was great to present prizes and certificates to the winning children from each age group.
The standard of writing was very high and judges had a very difficult job in picking the winners.
Well done to all the children who took part and to the Friends of Tarleton Library for organising a very popular competition.
Finally, we have reached the end of the school summer term and families will be looking forward to a summer break.
I hope the weather stays fine and you all have an enjoyable summer.
