Shrovetide Comes to Hilltop!

We were treated to a very special visitor yesterday - Paul Harrison, who will turn up today's Shrovetide Ball!  This was hugely exciting for the children, who listened while Paul explained about the pictures on the ball, and about his family's involvement in the game over many years, including having a mix of Up'ards and Down'ards!  Paul's grand-daughters attend Hilltop and they very proudly showed the ball to the rest of the school.  Many thanks to Paul for taking the time to visit school, and we wish him and his family all the very best for his special day.
