School sculpture is a sign of the chimes
A primary school has had its emblem carved from a tree that once stood in the grounds.
The 6ft by 4ft carving of a bell suspended over Gilwiskaw Brook, was unveiled at Packington Primary School.
Created by artist Peter Leadbeater at the National Forest Wood Fair, at Beacon Hill, in August, it was made out of a large cedar tree from the school grounds that had to be felled earlier this year after it became unstable.
Carol Price, head teacher at Packington Primary, said: "The cedar tree was originally planted to commemorate the coronation of King George VI so it is marvellous that we have been able to retain a part of our school history in such a special way."

Sophie Churchill, chief executive of The National Forest Company, said: "This is a wonderful story of recycling a beautiful tree and returning it with pride of place."
