March primary school presented with anniversary tapestry made by Whitemoor prisoners

PUPILS at All Saints Primary School in March have been presented with a special tapestry made by prisoners from Whitemoor to celebrate the school’s anniversary.

The 16-foot long tapestry was presented to the school in a special service held by Rev Jenny Webb to celebrate their 16th anniversary.

It features the school’s crest as well as hundreds of fish - one to represent each of the children.

Head Teacher Rachel Beeson said: “The project was started last January based on a design that the children created and it was fantastic to see it.

“It was actually quite moving when it was put up because we didn’t know how it was going to turn out. It has turned out better than anybody could have hoped.”
