Friday Bridge School closed due to norovirus

Friday Bridge Primary School has been closed for the rest of the week after being stricken with norovirus.

More than half of the children in the village school have come down with the winter vomiting bug and a number of staff, including headteacher Jayne Williams, have also caught it.

The highly contagious virus causes vomiting and diarrhoea and generally lasts for a couple of days.

Parents have received advice leaflets about the bug and the school should reopen as normal after the half term holiday next week.
