Speaker of House Visits Bury Grammar

Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP, Speaker of the House of Commons and proud Lancastrian was a special guest at Bury Grammar School on 5 November for the first Roger Kay Lecture of the 2020’s.
Named after the local businessman and philanthropist who re-founded BGS nearly 300 years ago in 1730, this was the perfect venue for a packed audience.
Jo Anderson, Principal of Bury Grammar School stated, “Given that, this year, Bonfire Night marked the end of a week of political fireworks and controversy, Sir Lindsay’s arrival was eagerly anticipated. Preparations had been taking place for some time prior to the visit and we were thrilled that so many Bury Grammar pupils, as well as students from Hazel Wood High School, St Gabriel’s and Holy Cross, had been keen to attend this careers lecture. Additionally, to be joined by both local Bury MPs, the Right Honourable James Daly MP and Christian Wakeford MP, along with a number of alumni, parents, governors, supporters of the School and local business people, was a real honour.”
Mrs Jane Stevens, Director of Finance said, “Sir Lindsay delivered an incredibly interesting lecture. He spoke of his links to Bury Grammar School and his fondness for Lancashire and his constituency in Chorley’.
