SCHOOL VISIT

We recently visited the Heritage Centre in September 2019 with a group of children from our Federation Schools, Marston Montgomery and Long Lane. So that we had a memorable experience, the volunteers and staff planned every detail. Safety and safeguarding, which is the main concern of teachers on such a visit, was paramount.

Highlights for the children were: the opportunity to get “hands-on” in the STEM Centre by making a model of an engine, discovering facts about the huge range of engines exhibited and last but not least, being able to sit in a bomber. Some said they would have loved to have been a pilot or navigator at that time, although others felt that they wouldn’t have enjoyed being in such a small space for up to 8 hours at a time!

Thank you to Kathryn Sibley and the rest of the team for making it such a success for both the pupils and the staff.

Alcock and Brown 100 year celebration

May I thank you and the other Trustees of the RRHT for the opportunity to attend the centenary celebration. The event was superb in the way the opportunity was used to open the new STEM centre which so aptly bridged the history with the future. What a history it is too! Do please pass on my thanks to all of those people for arranging such an interesting, important and hospitable event. I am particularly pleased to learn that there are moves afoot to make the collection more accessible to a wider audience.
