(June 1981) Maypole 1981

Old traditions live on at the Village School where the children celebrate the Spring with Maypole and Morris dancing. This year, the rain poured down as the Juniors sang “Summer is Icumen In”, but the May Queen was duly crowned by Mrs Mary Poulton, and the maypole ribbons intricately woven before the company retreated indoors for the rest of the proceedings.

We can also report that Mrs Poulton’s successor has been appointed. She is Mrs Barbara Greenhalgh, a teacher of wide experience, who lives at Mollington and currently teaches at the William Morris School in Banbury.

The recent Bazaar at the School was a re sounding success. Thanks are due to everyone who supported it in any way, and especially those who were cajoled into providing gifts for the Bottle Stall.
