We were pleased to welcome Bury Parliamentary candidates to College today for a General Election Hustings. They gave speeches and answered students’ questions on a range of issues. Afterwards, some candidates spent time with our own Mock Election candidates, giving them advice on their campaigns. We are very grateful to James Frith (Lab), James Daly (Con), Colin Lambert (Brexit), Gareth Lloyd-Johnson (Lib Dem) and Glynn Heath (Green) for giving us time out of their busy schedules.
Many Thanks to all staff and students who helped at the ‘Children’s Christmas Party’. The children enjoyed party food, a disco, face painting, and a visit from Father Christmas, a wonderful time was had by all. Ho Ho Ho....
