With the level of central funding frozen for the past three years and the prospect of the freeze continuing for the immediate future, community support for the pupils of Blackmarston Specialist School is becoming increasingly important.
The Worshipful Master of the Hereford Delphis Lodge No. 7769, Worshipful Brother John Crooks, carried on the well established tradition among Herefordshire Freemasons, of supporting Blackmarston School with a presentation of a cheque for £628 on behalf of the brethren of his own lodge and that of Vaga Lodge No. 3146, when he visited the school on sports day.
John Crooks was taken on a tour of the school by Jackie Preece, the School Administrator, before meeting the Class Teacher Juliet Alexander and the 9 – 11 year old pupils of Galaxy Class, where the presentation took place.
Jackie Preece warmly thanked John Crooks for the continued and most welcome support for Blackmarston School and its 78 pupils with special educational needs.
