Did you go to the village school ? Do you have any old photos, or would you like to help run the school's 175th birthday party? If so, Jason Debney would like to hear from you.

Jason writes:

Brightwell Church of England Primary School was founded in 1841 and will be celebrating the end of its 175th academic year on June 24th with a birthday party at the school. Everyone is welcome who has any connection with the school and/or pre-school whether a parent, past student, present student, parent of a past student, staff member or villager.

The school will be open for you to look around and an afternoon of fun is planned. An old school alumni club will be launched and there will be some short speeches and the singing of ‘Happy Birthday for our parish school. We will also be looking to the future.

Volunteers are needed to help run and organise the event. Help is needed to make a display on the school’s history, run the bar and BBQ, decorate the playing field and organise activities. You are also being asked to spread the word. It would be lovely to get as many people associated with the school there on the day and this needs you to spread the word; by word of mouth, Facebook and email. Already classes from the 1940s, 1960s and 1970s have started to gather their former class mates. Finally, do any of you have any memorabilia that can be used in the display? Any photos can be sent electronically, larger items can be brought in on the day.

If you would like to help or have any ideas or old photos contact Jason on 07761169343 or email
