VIDEO: Tydd leavers mark the occasion with special front page

Five pupils from Tydd St Mary School enjoyed their last Friday in primary education by working at the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian offices.

Earlier in the year Free Press and Guardian editor Jeremy Ransome visited the school to talk about journalism, and in the weeks since the pupils had been writing reports about their school year for a special front page.

On Friday Maisie Pratt, Erika Webb, Patrick Walsh, Joshua Ripley and Alfie Ransome designed their commemorative leavers’ front page, helped by Jeremy.

The page will be published in full in a forthcoming edition of one of the papers.
