Mayor opens Weaver Vale’s new Forest School

FRODSHAM Weaver Vale Primary School celebrated the official opening of their new Forest School with a magical Christmas market.
Visitors were led to the Forest School along a newly installed pathway, lit with fairy lights and professional lighting.
As guests walked along the path, the sun was setting in the distance and the smell of the campfire became stronger. Mulled punch was warming and the children were able to roast their own marshmallows on the open fire pit.
The school welcomed many faces from the community, including the Mayor of Frodsham, Cllr Lord Frank Pennington and his wife.
Before cutting the ribbon to open the Forest School, Lord Pennington told how, when he was the first Mayor of Frodsham, he purchased the land that Frodsham Weaver Vale is sited on, 22 acres for £10!
He then sold it to the council who developed the school. The children loved learning about the history of their school.
The New Year will see the school’s 50th anniversary and they will be hosting a celebration event in the summer term.
As night fell, the pupils sang carols around the roaring fire. There was food, stalls, games a tuck shop and raffles. The Rotary Club of Frodsham and Helsby joined in, selling crocus bulbs that had been packaged by the school’s “Rota Kids Club.”
Key Stage 2 children surprised everyone with a ‘flash mob’ dance routine and Santa Claus flew by to hand out gifts and sweets. The event raised valuable funds to support the development of the school grounds.
