Lifting the Lid
...on a box full of Easter educational items
On Tuesday 25th February the two churchwardens visited Lindale Primary School to deliver our gift from St Peter’s to the children. As part of their Shrove Tuesday assembly, we presented to them, a ‘Lift the Lid’ Easter Box. This contains all sorts of educational packs with activities to make learning about Easter fun and memorable. It is the companion to the Christmas Box which was a gift from Churches Together. The presentation was preceded by the briefest of explanations of the plans for St Peter’s become their parish church. We expressed the hope that pupils will visit St Peter’s on educational trips, and for fun time on St Peter’s Day. ‘Who’d like to climb the tower?’ A forest of hands and genuine excitement! We acknowledged the very positive role played by the Friendship Group at High Newton had played in involving the School in the community, and we plan to build on this and encourage more participation in activities at St Peter’s.
