Range High students show MP Bill Esterson some of the thank you cards they received from the recipients of the hampers which the school delivered.

 

Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson thanked school pupils in Formby who donated to hampers which were donated to older people in the town.

"The schools wanted the town’s older residents to see the positive qualities of the children and pupils. 
 
"Range High School made 17 deliveries in total, which is 17 older people who have benefited from a fantastic scheme which saw all of Formby's schools working together for the benefit of the the community."
 
Bill also thanked the headteacher at Range High, Graham Aldridge and the staff for hosting his visit.
 
Bill said: "Range High is clearly an outstanding school. It was fantastic to see so many pupils who clearly love being at the school.
 
"I was also very impressed with the student council who I met and who asked me some great questions about my role of an MP.
 
"Thanks to headteacher Mr Graham Aldridge, the staff and the pupils for making me so welcome."
