Plea to MP over school

The following letter appeared in the Buxton Advertiser on 30 May.

Mr Levitt,

Here is a challenge for you, let everyone see what help you can give to Combs School.

Voted as one of the top ten in 2006, you must be very proud, so please write to Mr Bruce Buckley of Derbyshire County Council and see ways in that you can save £54,000, the price of ripping the heart out of a village.

Combs School is the best-run school in Derbyshire with happy, well-mannered children and excellent staff.

My two grandsons live in Combs and I hope they will be able to go to the school and also future generations. Please do not let it close; life is not all about the cost.

Mrs M Hill
Warmbrook Road
