Old Boy's blazer donated to the BGS archive

Old Boy's blazer donated to the BGS archive

The Development Office were delighted to welcome Roger and Catherine Hall into School a couple of weeks ago. 

Roger’s father, Geoffrey Carnelley Hall attended Bury Grammar School Boys from 1919 – 1926 and was a keen sportsman. 

Roger kindly brought with him his father’s School  Blazer which he is very generously donating to the School to go on display for our 450 Anniversary celebrations next year. 

Geoffrey received his soccer colours in 1925 and played for the first X1 in 1926.He was also a keen swimmer and received his 100 yards freestyle certificate in 1922.

Geoffrey’s brothers Stanley and Leslie and sister Winifred also attended BGS as did Winifred’s future husband Tom Rigby, Stanley’s son Kenneth and Stanley’s daughters husband Geoffrey Wild.

We are very grateful for the donation of the blazer which will have pride of place in our Archive display.
