The History Association is now able to confirm the programme for the visit of presenters from Radio Northampton and Look East on Friday morning, 9th November.
The radio feature about the hundred year-old apple tree project will go out in a series of slots on the Breakfast Show between 7.00am and 9.00am.
Stuart Ratcliffe and the TV crew will then arrive at 10.30am. Throughout the morning, there will be a series of interviews about the project, but the main event will be the planting of a tree by Alan Jackson to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War 1. This will take place at 11.00am. on the corner of the High Street and Park Road. The school has kindly agreed to let the choir sing for us and, after the tree is firmly in the ground, Les Ray, who was brought up in the village, will perform a poignant song based on his great-uncle’s experiences in the war. The tree will be dedicated by Canon Brian Withington on Remembrance Sunday.
If you are able to share the event with us, we will be very pleased to see you.
