MORE PUBLIC NOTICES,
ETC — PAGE 6. Queen’s 1972 visit to be recalled at town museum
“Where were you in ’72?” is the question osed at a summer exhibition at Congleton Museum.
Inspired by an anonymous donation of memorabilia relating to the 700th anniversary cele-
ration in 1972 of the town’s charter, the exhi-
ition focuses on aspects of life in Congleton that year.
The year-long series of events included a visit from the Queen.
A museum spokesman said: “That year was an exciting one for Congleton, with each month filled with exhi-
itions, competitions and festivities.
“A charter year baby started life rich with £100-worth of food and clothes donated by local and national firms; the town’s industries were thriving and many showcased their trades at the industrial exhibition; local athletes took part in an “It’s a knock out” contest in Congleton Park; men didn’t shave for months in the hope of winning a beard growing competition; the Queen paraded down Lawton Street to the town hall, although we have it on good authority that the specifically installed avocado green loo was not used.”
Many involved in the ’72 events, including Stephen Sebire, Dr Joan Allcock and Grace Davenport, are contributing mementoes and memories.
Other Congletonians have loaned and/or donated artefacts from the charter year, including photographs of relatives meeting the Queen, fashionable dresses and collectable china pieces as well scrapbooks and programmes.
Thanks to an article in the Congleton “Chronicle” the charter year queen (Mary Yates) and charter year baby (Heath David Henry Olive) have been located and will be joining in the celebrations.
“Where were you in ’72” opens on Saturday, 3rd July and runs throughout the summer. The museum is open from noon until 4.30pm Tuesday to Friday and on Sundays from 10am-4.30pm. Admission, £2 or £1 concessions.
A talk and sideshow by Jean
Alcock is planned for late July/ early August.
For information call the museum on 01260 276360.

A delighted Mr Roberts shows the Ofsted report to pupils Dominic Stafford, Chris Ives-Keeler, Frances Bates and Tyler Cooper. (“Chronicle” photo. 2207/10).
The Ofsted report for Eaton Bank School in Congleton has raised the “family feel” that encourages students to become high achievers.
The Government inspection also judged the school to be “good” in terms of “overall effectiveness” and that it was on its way to becoming officially “outstanding”.
Headteacher Paul Roberts said: “Students, staff and parents responded in an overwhelmingly positive way to the inspectors and communicated a strong message of support for the school.
“It is so heartening when, in the questionnaire, which was returned by twice as many parents than usually happens nationally, 95% of our parents feel their children enjoy school and are happy with the educational experience they receive here.”
HMI lead inspector Sue
Harrison stated in the report, “Behaviour is good.
“The majority of students have very positive attitudes to learning, they work well with each other and have respect for other people.
“They develop a good range of skills to help them when they leave school.
“Levels of attainment are above average by the end of year 11.”
In her letter to students, Mrs Harrison stated that the inspection team had sensed “the family feel” that students had mentioned, as the school worked to ensure the “culture and ethos was focused on high achievement and students enjoying and feeling supported in their learning”.
The inspection team recognised that the school was “well placed to make further improvement” based on the “impressive work and student achievements” seen on the two-day visit.
Investment in the sixth form, such as the new common room and dedicated sixth form learning centre, were recognised as being instrumental in the improved progress of the current group of sixth form students.
Ofsted noted that each year, virtually all students who applied to university were successful in gaining a place.
Chairman of governors Prof David Parsons congratulated the leadership team, staff, students and parents for contributing to a “highly successful, positive outcome”.
He added: “Without doubt, Ofsted have signalled that our good school is well on its way to becoming the outstanding, world-class school we are aiming for.”
