SCHOOLCHILDREN have been first in line to wish the Leigh Journal a happy 140th birthday.

Pupils from Newton Westpark Primary School and Westleigh St Paul’s CE Primary School have been showing off their creative skills to make posters and cards in celebration of our landmark anniversary.

The Journal’s official birthday is tomorrow, Friday, and more pictures of the schools’ crafty creations will appear in our birthday supplement next month, which is also packed full of pictures, memories from former staff and a look back over 140 years of the Journal.
