Century old tradition welcomed by pupils

Leamington Editorial 21st Oct, 2019   0

A CENTURY-old tradition was welcomed by pupils at Warwick School.

Pupils gathered for Warwick’s town crier, Michael Reddy’s news announcement – delivered in true historical style.

Mr Reddy requested the headmaster grant permission for an extra week’s holiday at half-term – a tradition dating back to at least 1912.

Luckily for the boys, permission has been granted for the past 107 years and the announcement was met with a huge cheer.

The town crier then visited classrooms to collect for his nominated charity, Evelyn’s Gift which provide acts of kindness to people in need, as well as CPR training and life-support skills.

More than £750 was raised for the charity.


Weddings, Birthdays, Bereavements, Thank you notices, Marriages and more.
