Almost 1000 Bedworth schoolchildren sang their hearts out at the special service in the Quadrangle of the Almshouses. There were hymns, historical readings, a short address and prayers. Rose, Lady Daventry, also presented local Schools with a financial gift for their libraries. The bells of All Saints Parish Church rang in thanksgiving as the service ended. Guests were then invited to the Church for the unveiling of a memorial plaque to Nicholas Chamberlaine. Music was played on a Clavinova by the Rev. Rupert Jeffcoat who had chosen a special piece composed by the Rev. Richard Mudge, a former Bedworth Rector who died in 1763.
