Tithe Farm Primary School: Lord-Lieutenant Visit Helps Mark Queen's 90th

There was royal Representation at a Houghton Regis Primary School as part of its celebrations to mark The Queen’s 90th birthday.

Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire Helen Nellis, The Queen’s representative in the county, visited Tithe Farm Primary School to help pupils, staff and governors mark the event.

Mrs Nellis was given a tour of the school in Tithe Farm Road, led by head girl Caitlin Foster and head boy Kealan Hawthorne. She visited every class and was able to talk with children and staff and view the work going on in the school.

Joining the Lord-Lieutenant on the tour were headteacher Shelah Surgey, deputy headteacher Jamie Carmichael, chair of governors Central Bedfordshire Councillor Susan Goodchild, and school governors Houghton Regis Town Councillor Chris Slough and the Reverend David Skinner.

Mrs Nellis learnt about the celebrations held to mark The Queen’s birthday, with all children having a street party-style lunch, and every class enjoying a special birthday cake made by the school cook.

She then took part in a special assembly where she talked to the children about her role as The Queen’s representative in Bedfordshire.

Mrs Nellis said of her 25 April visit: “I had a wonderful visit to Tithe Farm Primary School and was delighted to meet the amazing pupils and staff. There is a really vibrant and enthusiastic atmosphere in the school and I enjoyed hearing about their exciting achievements and plans for the future.”
