A meadow in memory of much-loved school supervisor
With trowels and gardening gloves in hand, the Handforth community turned out in force to plant an area of St Benedict's school field with an abundance of shrubs, bulbs and seeds in memory of a much-loved member of the school and village.
Over 150 people came together on Saturday 19th October to plant hundreds of bulbs to create 'Marchbank Meadow', an area of the field set aside as a memory garden in tribute to Val Marchbank a midday supervisor at the school who died last October.
Val was lead lunchtime supervisor at St Benedict's, having started working at the school in the early 1980s as a cook, together with her sister Rose, who was then the site manager. Val had five children and six grandchildren, most of whom have attended the school.

Children at St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School in Handforth ‘took to the air’ this week for a whistle-stop tour of the globe.
As part of the school’s Geography Week, each child was issued with a ‘passport’ and ‘boarding pass’ on Monday morning.
Meanwhile staff, dressed as cabin crew, ushered them into the school hall to meet Captain Lee Montague-Trenchard to prepare for ‘take-off’.

Thank you to all parents, staff and children who helped make the PTA summer fair such a huge success today. Over £2600 profit was made which will be put to good use over the coming months. So many parents gave up their time to organise the event - from initial ideas and planning to organising sponsors and supporters to cleaning up afterwards.
It is very much appreciated by the school and the children and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your efforts. We look forward to the same again next year!
