As the dust settles on Remembrance Sunday, we would like to say how incredibly proud we are to be part of such a wonderful community here in Longridge.

The Longridge Cluster Schools Armistice Project, the initiative of Simon Wallis, head teacher at Barnacre Road Primary School, delivered a truly fantastic service of remembrance at the Guild Hall on 11th November and one never to be forgotten.

‘Armistice – The Great War Remembered’ was a phenomenal success involving 500 children and 100 adults. The pupils, staff and members of the wider Longridge community came together to put on an incredible production.

We’re so pleased to have been a small part of this project, creating the silhouette soldiers that each honoured a Longridge soldier that died during the First World War. And what an amazing job the Longridge Cluster Schools Armistice Project did both within Longridge, and at the service in the Guild Hall to make us all so very proud!

You can watch a short video of the performance here. And to ensure this project doesn’t end here, we’d like to encourage all to help raise as much money as possible for invaluable military charities who are facing cuts. To donate please click here:
