Educational Programme

Peter shares a 'yoke' with an enthusiastic pupil at Chase.
Our educational programme which had so far involved Primary and Junior school children has now evolved to include Secondary schools with Peter Dolby's visit to Chase High in Westcliff.

The PowerPoint presentation has been refined to engage children of an older age with links to British Pathe newsreels of Leigh cockling and the Dunkirk evacuation added. The pupils were years 9 and 10 (13 to 14 years) but included a six former, Alex Brice, who is very interested in local history.

Alex asked whether we knew of a veteran of the evacuation she could talk to. We are most grateful to Frank Grove, an Honorary Life Member of the Trust, for allowing Peter, Alex and Chase's Head of History, Victoria Lang to visit him at home. You can read her report here.
