Blue Peter Tapestry

25 years ago the children from Wearhead School, with their headmaster Mr. Peart and teacher Mrs Jackson made a tapestry of events in Weardale over history. This is now displayed in Wearhead Village Hall and today they had a reunion. On November 7th 1985 they travelled to London and appeared on Blue Peter, where they all recieved a Blue Peter badge. Several other pupils helped but were unable to attend the reunion.
