Pupils stay quiet to help fund grand chair
A new addition to promote reading at Grange View Church of England First School in Widdrington Station is proving very popular.
Ashley Borley, a parent who is a carpenter, made the grand chair with his son’s assistance. Funding was provided by Friends of Grange View and a sponsored silence by pupils raised £327 for the finishing touches.
The fabric was then picked, foam ordered and a seamstress commissioned to do the work.
