On the first of July, Nigel Howe and Ian Curtis joined the children of the school at one of their regular services in the church. This gave Nigel the opportunity to present the school with a case containing a collection of sixteen Roman coins and other artefacts, all of which he had found in the parish. Many of the coins are in very good condition and will give children the chance to handle material that they could only otherwise read about. It also provides them with a direct link to the history of the village.
The headteacher, Mrs Milton, also formally received the contribution from the History Association of £400 for books to support the history curriculum. The money has already been spent on an exciting – and colourful – set of books that range from the Romans to the Victorians.
