Children from Robert Miles Junior School were invited by Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes to a special event to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice and the naming of some of the new roads on one of the housing developments off the old A46. The roads on this particular development are being named after those from Bingham who lost their lives in the First Worlds War.
You may recall that all the children in the school painted a brick with a poppy theme. The ones our children painted have been installed along with ones from the infants and Carnarvon School to create two wonderful pieces of art at the entrance to the new development.
There was a ceremony including a two minutes silence and laying of wreaths to commemorate the Armistice. This was followed by a performance from the Toot Hill Big Band (it was great to see ex pupils from Robert Miles performing!) and singing from our pupils who joined together with the pupils from Carnarvon.
If you get the chance to have a look at the artwork it is well worth doing so – it is at the entrance to the Romans Quarter development.
Thank you to all the children who came, they were a credit to themselves and the school.
