Save North Reddish School

[Quoted from the BBC Action Network. Click on the headline to see the site.]
We want to prevent our local council from closing our 98 year old primary school and amalgamating with another school in new premises, creating a very large building, with possibly 650 pupils
our school is a very special place. It is a beautiful Edwardian building. During the 1st World War, it was used as a military hospital, and it contains a memorial to those who served and died in the war from our area. It is a very popular school and the children love being there. The construction of a new school will cost council tax payers millions of pounds and it is possible that playing fields will need to be sold to fund it. We do not feel it would benefit our children attending such a large school.
