When a drone visited Stakesby!

Paul from YorkshireDroneServices.com recently visited Stakesby with his drone to take some images of the children spelling out the word 'GOOD' in celebration of our recent Ofsted success.

A huge 'Thank You' to Paul for his services and patience and keep an eye out in the Whitby Gazette for the images!
