Children of Barkway First School at their Easter Service


THE children of Barkway First School got ready for the Easter period by letting off balloons at their village church this week.

The four to nine year olds wrote prayers to go with the balloons at the service, led by Reverend Sarah Hillman.

Linda Laing, secretary at the school, said: “At school the children had been thinking about what they would give up for someone they loved and they wrote some lovely prayers

“One said they would give up their favourite toys to help the poor children and one said they would give up chocolate for their teacher.”
