CALLING FORMER LEIGH BOYS & GIRLS GRAMMAR SCHOOLS PUPILS!
HEALTHY ARTS are looking for anyone who attended and/or taught at the Leigh Grammar Schools (LGS & LGGS). This Heritage Lottery funded project has been set up to gather memories, record oral histories and create a celebration event on 14th July 2018.
Working with the Archives Service and Bedford High School, we are looking for former pupils/staff to share your memories (in groups or as an individual). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring Martin on 07542 114383.
DID YOU MISS OR FAIL YOUR 11+ EXAM?
Then Healthy Arts would love to hear your stories too. Did the experience make you even more determined to succeed in life? Or did it knock your confidence? If you’re willing to share your memories and opinions then please email email@example.com or ring Martin on 07542 114383.
The good news keeps coming for Healthy Arts at the moment as we were delighted to accept a cheque from Age UK’s Ambition for Ageing fund to buy equipment for MemorabLEIGH. This is our reminiscence/local history group which meets on Tuesdays 1-3pm at The Old Grammar School in Railway Road, aimed at anyone 50+ who wants to talk about their life in, or find out about the history of, our wonderful little town of Leigh. 3 per session includes refreshments. Thanks to Age UK we will now be able to buy local history resources and the equipment to share them.
