New Mills Festival

Written by Mrs Williams

The pupils in Year 5 made lego brick lanterns which became part of the famous New Mills Lantern Procession. The whole process was managed by the children under the guidance of school staff and volunteer helpers. Over the course of two weeks, they designed their lanterns, made the frames, chose a colour and papered them resulting in eight separate lanterns to light the procession route. Many of the children joined the thousands of people who walked the procession and proudly showed their families what they had achieved.
