Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

On Friday 1st June, Baroness Berridge visited local primary schools who were celebrating the Diamond Jubilee.  The Parent Teacher Associations of Empingham and Great Casterton had raised the funds to provide two commemorative benches in the school grounds, and Baroness Berridge had been invited to ‘open’ both benches

“It was a great privilege to visit these schools and speak to the children about the monarchy and the Jubilee celebrations.  I thoroughly enjoyed the Olympic Dances performed at Empingham School, and it was clear that Mrs.Rowbotham and her staff have been working very hard.   It was also a pleasure to meet the Bishop’s visitor, Mrs Helen Bush, whose delight in the children was plain to see.”
