Celebrating Richmond 950!

07 May 2021  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in: ,

A very grand and happy birthday to Richmond, the original Richmond in North Yorkshire, which is 950 years old! To honour this momentous and historic landmark in our town’s history, we are delighted that our students are learning all about the heritage of our wonderful town. We have invited them to come up with ideas to complement the fabulous range of events that are already taking place in Richmond over the coming months.  Do head over to RICHMOND 950 and find out how the community is coming together to commemorate the 950 years, or follow on FACEBOOK . You can enjoy the presentation that our students watched HERE

The official launch is tomorrow at noon, with an official opening by the Mayor and Baroness  Harris of Richmond, 950 Patron. There are some great activities lined up including street artists, historical stallholders at the market, plus commemorative 950 mugs and t-towels available to purchase.

Sophia Mawer, Lead Teacher for History, said: “Richmond 950 is a really exciting project for the whole community to get involved in, with a wealth of excellent activities for everyone to get involved in. I am really looking forward to seeing the ideas that the students come up with for Richmond School’s marking of  the 950 anniversary and I hope that a lot of students with their friends and family support the huge range of events planned.”
