Trip to Gloucester Archives

On Friday 22nd March 2013 Alders visited Gloucester Archives Office.

John and Vicky looked after us for the day. They took us on a tour of the archives and showed us some amazing artefacts related to the history of Newnham.

It was a really interesting day and we all learnt a lot.

The archives staff commented on how well behaved and interested the children were. They were also impressed with the children's questions. Well done Alders!!!
