July has seen two further external visits for the Project and the Team Members
The first trip, for young people of the village, was to the Black Country Museum in Dudley to gain an insight into life during the Victorian period.
The schoolchildren have already had the opportunity to experience the Victorian classroom at the Museum of childhood at Sudbury Hall, but this trip allowed the older young people of the village to get a taste of Victorian life during the Industrial Revolution.
They had the opportunity to travel on a barge,
and also the opportunity to visit a coal drift mine
Three members of the project team visited Nottingham University for a half term progress report. A number of projects were represented and it was a good opportunity to display what we have done and also to see what others have done.
We returned with a number of ideas for the future
