Handcross school centenary celebrations

An extensive newspaper cutting appeared in the Mid Sussex Times on 27th July 1978 following the festivities to celebrate Handcross Primary School’s centenary.
The 100-year-old bell was restored and re-hung on the façade and Mr Barry Gooders, a former headmaster, and Mrs Winifred Greenfield, ex-pupil and caretaker for 30 years, were given the honour of being the first two ringers.
A video of the event is attached to picture #771.
