Pupils use socks in moving tribute to young friend
Hayden Crowe, a five-year-old boy who tragically lost his life in a swimming pool accident where he drowned, has been remembered in a moving - if not unconventional - tribute.

All staff and pupils at Moss Side Primary School, where he was about to start year one, wore odd socks in memory of the boy who was known by everyone at the institution for his mismatched legwear, the Lancashire Evening Post reported.

A special assembly was held in Hayden's honour to celebrate his short life.

Headteacher at Moss Side Janice Burden said: "Hayden was a lovely little boy and we wanted to do something to celebrate his wonderful life at the school and to let his family know that we are thinking about them at this terrible time."

Noting his mother's caring and conscientious side as a parent, Ms Burden added: "The assembly reflected all different aspects of his life."

Hosiery was recently used in a charity effort, when men dressed in ballet outfits, including tights, pulled a two-tonne boat into Mablethorpe on bank holiday Monday to raise money for the RNLI.
