POINTS OF LIGHT AWARD
Thank you to the many people who have congratulated me on The Points of Light Award that was presented to me by our Derbyshire MP, Mrs Pauline Latham OBE, MP on Fri 14 Apr 2023 at the Spondon Conservative Office. The personal letter from the PM predominately referring to my Welfare work on Remembrance in reference to the WWII crashed Wellington Bomber W5795 in Stanley Village, Memories of Stanley Village Trust (MOSVT), but also mentioned my long Service to RBL Poppy Appeal since 1966 and I am still a serving and fairly active Poppy Appeal Organiser since 2003, and it also mentioned the Derbyshire Submariners Newsletters I have produced since 1997 as SOCA Derby, thence Submariners Association Derby and from 2011 Derbyshire Submariners. However, I must stress THIS AWARD IS NOT JUST TO ME, it is for ALL OF YOU, who support the various Ex Services events I organise or attend, and proving, YOU ALL ENSURE WE DO REMEMBER THEM.
School was closed for the day On Friday 10th March because of snow. The children were encouraged to send in their snow photos. It was a day to be with family and to appreciate the power of the weather. Some people were stranded when travelling, others lost power to their homes and some of us worked from home to keep safe.
We thank you God for our beautiful world.
We loved our school trip to the Panto this year to see Aladdin. Our children showed amazing respect as a fantastic audience. We are very grateful to Derby Live for helping us to keep our children safe and allocating us some great seats. The children lived out our school values from the moment they left school to their return. The bus drivers complimented us on their manner each child remembering to thank them. The children then returned to school and our collective worship team unpicked the whole experience making some very strong links to the Christmas story. The children showed respect by thanking their staff members and Sam for arranging the whole event.
