Laddsworth Primary School in Hilton celebrated its 110th anniversary in early March. As part of its commemorations, all of the school's 564 pupils walked the short distance from the school to the garden of remembrance at the Hilton Anglican Church. There they laid flowers on the memorial stone of the school's founder, Daisy Ladds, whose remains are interred there. Later they celebrated with a sweet treat in the form of celebration cakes for each grade.
