Sad to have to report the passing of former English teacher at KES, Mr Steve Plowes. Steve passed away on 13th February and his funeral will be held at Lytham Crematorium on 1st March at 2 p.m. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
"What a great day!" was the general feedback from the 16 Old Lidunian golfers who played in the annual Penry Trophy yesterday at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club. Under blue skies and light winds, the players took to the course in the 80th Anniversary game - for 80 years former pupils have battled for the same trophy and on the same golf course, which is a record we should be proud of.
Lancastrians overcame the recent resurgence of St Johns to be crowned the House Champions, and the fun prizes were picked up by Paul Beverley (Longest Drive on the 18th) and Jon Flitcroft (Nearest the Pin at the 9th).
In the main competitions, Jon Flitcroft retained the Handley Cup after a score of 31pts following his win last year. Paul Breedon was Runner Up for the umpteenth time for the Penry Trophy, which was won by Chris Hibbert with a great score of 35pts (photo of Chris with the Trophy under a portrait of Seve that hangs in the clubhouse).
Thanks to everyone for taking part, and we look forward to seeing you all next year to do battle again.
Schools by the Sea Exhibition
The gallery at Booths in Lytham played host to an exhibition from the school archives and attracted a huge range of visitors from KES, QMS and Arnold in the first joint exhibition. Where possible we captured photos and stories from our guests, all of which are public on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/OldLids. Please do take the time to review.
