Tuesday 22 March saw Ash Green Community Primary School’s first Easter Bonnet Parade through Mixenden take place and with over 350 pupils, parents, family and friends getting involved it turned out to be a real big hit.
The parade was entertaining to say the least as pupils performed an Easter Train Dance, arranged and choreographed by Jill Barker and Lucy Hughes from Mixenden Activity Centre while Reverend Robb Sutherland and drummers from Ingineer provided music to help keep a good beat.
The parade began at Ash Green Upper Site and continued down Mixenden Road before coming to an end at Holy Nativity Church, Mixenden where the Mayor of Calderdale, Councillor Lisa Lambert, Head Teacher, Mungo Sheppard and Parent Governor, Marcus Reeves all judged the biggest and best Easter bonnets competition.
A big thank you to pupils, parents and the community who took part and helped make the parade a success.
