Local school brings community together for a night to remember!
Ladies’ Night on 13 October at Elmley village hall saw three fabulous comedy dance acts – the Lady Boyz, the Sand Dancers and the North Cotswold Full Montonians – performing to a sell-out crowd of 150 local ladies, ranging from 18 to 80 year olds. Put on as a fundraiser for both Elmley Castle First School and the Worcester branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the evening raised over £3,5000.00 and was the inspiration of school mum Lisa Sharp who said, “Our jaws literally ached from laughing so much. We couldn’t have wished for a more hilarious and successful evening.”
Youth may not always have been on their side, but the dance acts who performed, along with the brave dads who donned pink boxer shorts and bow-ties to work as waiters for the evening, certainly gave the audience of current and former school mums, teachers, pupils and villagers a night to remember.
This was an evening that showed the exceptional parental support that Elmley Castle First School receives, together with a deep loyalty and affection from the wider community. It is a school that has been integral to the community for nearly 150 years, and the mutual support is evident in events like this as well as those like last Friday’s wonderful harvest festival, singing for Bricklehampton nursing home at Christmas, and May’s Oak Apple celebrations.
Situated in an enviable position at the foot of Bredon Hill, Elmley School is blessed with fantastic outside spaces, small class sizes, a family atmosphere and caring teachers who know their pupils inside out. The school is going from strength to strength, with pupils joining across the age groups from in and out of catchment.
