Stafford Mayor Opens Schools’ Local Living History Project

 

On Tuesday June 30th 2015 Councillor Peter and Mrs Joy Jones (Mayor and Mayoress of Stafford) opened a joint schools’ project on the living history of the Walton and Bednall areas.

Local children have been researching the development of their community by interviewing residents/family members and collecting artefacts from past days.

Each school then presented its findings in a variety of displays including model making, art, posters and audio-visual at Berkswich Methodist Church.

Four primary schools were involved; Leasowes, Berkswich, Barnfields, All Saints (Bednall) along with Walton High School.

Their findings shed light on a remarkable and fascinating recent history of the Stafford area.
