CEMETERY SUNDAY

Our annual ceremony in Roundwood cemetery where we gather each year to remember and pray for our departed loved ones, will take place on Sunday 26th July (Sunday week) at 7pm.

 

OLD SCHOOL REUNION

The Roundwood & District Community Council are organising a Reunion at the Roundwood Old School on Saturday 1st August from 7.30pm.  This is the last chance for all former pupils and teachers of the Old School to come and have a look around the school, which has recently been sold.

In particular, we would like to welcome any past pupils and their families who are now living abroad to come back and share in this occasion, which will coincide with the Roundwood  Festival (31st July to 2nd August). It promises to be a great social weekend in Roundwood village. 

If you attended the Old School in Roundwood, please consider contributing a short account (just a page or two) about your time at the school. We are gathering photos and other mementos from life at the old school so if you have any that we can borrow, scan and return for the occasion, it will be much appreciated. 

Please include your name and the start and end years from your time at school (or the decade if you prefer!).  You can email your short account to [email protected] or please place handwritten accounts in an envelope and leave in to Maureen in the Parish Office. We plan to display the written accounts from teachers and pupils at the reunion on 1st August and during the ‘open school day’ on Sunday, 2nd August from 2pm – 5pm.  Also, some or all of the documents will be included in a time capsule, along with other materials, which will be placed in the grounds of the school sometime after the reunion.

We hope you can come from near and far to join us for this occasion.  Please spread the word as we are eager to ensure all former pupils and teachers know of the event. Thank you
