Down Ampney Primary School

The Garden of Remembrance

Children and staff from Down Ampney Church of England Primary School visited The Garden of Remembrance at Lydiard Park on Thursday 16th November this year to honour those who have given their lives for us. The suggestion was made by a parent knowing the school’s proximity to Swindon even though they are a Gloucestershire school. The school were joined by their local vicar, Reverend John Swanton who shared stories of service personnel that he knew through his role as the local vicar. Chris, Year 4 said, “Even though it was sad, it was nice to remember people in a positive way.”
