NEW MILLS Primary School’s recent jubilee celebrations were felt as far away as West Yorkshire.

Over 250 balloons were launched as part of a fun-filled afternoon last month to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

And all the winning balloons were recovered within a few square miles of Leeds.

Ellen Dean was the winner of the balloon race, ahead of George Taylor and Isabella Hammond, and all three received a High Street Books voucher.

Fourth, fifth and sixth place went to Willow Gell, Sarah Kennedy and Luke Corbett. All the pupils received certificates.

The event was organised by the school’s PTA.
