Primary school children treat villagers to festive singing

The children at Askrigg, Bainbridge and West Burton schools have treated local villagers to some festive singing.

The children at Bainbridge are the youngest in the BAWB Federation’s group and they went to sing to the people who live in Sycamore Hall.

They then sang carols on the village green, including their favourite, When Santa got stuck up the chimney.

At Askrigg, the Key Stage two children and sang to the residents in the village besides tree Christmas tree, while at West Burton the children gathered on the village green.

Staff say all the villagers were very appreciative of the gesture and kept a respectful social distance.

The school governors said it has been a very unusual time in schools with no visitors, so going out into their communities felt like the right thing to do.
