Commemorative Tree Plaques installed at Ulverston Schools

Ulverston Town Council have installed commemorative plaques at the 5 schools where commemorative trees were planted.

The trees were planted in October 2023 to commemorate the life of Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III and are now labelled with a plaque as a reminder for future generations to come.

The 5 schools where commemorative trees were planted are Croftlands Infants Primary School, Croftlands Junior School, Sir John Barrow Primary School, St Mary’s Primary School and Ulverston Victoria High School.

A Very Snowy Carols at The Coro

The annual Carols at The Coro event took place on Saturday 2nd December – a day that will certainly be remembered by many due to the amount of snow that also arrived that day.

Fortunately the snow didn’t put off our scheduled performers – Ulverston Training Band, Ulverston Town Band, Ulverston Choral Society and the St Mary’s Primary School Choir – and guests were treated to an array of Christmas classics and popular sing-a-longs throughout the matinee performance.

The second to last song, Jingle Bells, performed by Ulverston Town Band saw the Mayor of Ulverston, Counsellor Michelle Scrogham, joined by children from the audience and the Mayor of Dalton for a bell-ringing finale of festive cheer. 

Considering the lower than expected attendance, an incredible £411 was raised at the event which will go to local Ulverston charities, as chosen by the Mayor of Ulverston.

Thank you to everyone who travelled through the snow to ensure the performance was a success!

 

Ulverston Christmas light switch on Saturday 25th November 4pm
