We are delighted to announce that five boys from Bedford School are winners in the ‘Recording Bedfordians’ newspaper article competition, run as part of the Harpur Trust’s 450th Anniversary celebrations. 

The theme of the competition, co-organised with John Bunyan Museum & Library, was ‘Recording Bedfordians’ and entrants were given the task of writing a 500-word newspaper report on a Bedford character.   The newspaper articles were then judged by local journalists from Castle Quarter Magazine, Beds on Sunday, Times and Citizen, and The Clanger.
