Congratulations to those children and parents of Dosbarth Bedwen who represented BIPS at the VE Day 70th anniversary celebrations hosted by Barry at War Group last Saturday.  The children performed brilliantly in front of a packed house of VE Day veterans and dignitaries, singing songs from the era and a superb effort from parents to kit them out in costumes. We received some postive feedback from the Minister Jane Hutt, Alan Cairns MP and, most importantly, the fabulous VE Day veterans.
