Hazel Shuttleworth and Aubrey Law went on a trip down memory Lane at our Nature Connections Event this week. Hazel was delighted to revisit the Robins dormitory where she stayed on a school residential with Eastfield Junior School back in the 1950s and Aubrey stands in our beautiful refurbished ORB, once the boys dorm, when he was a boarder at Kingswood Trust also during the 1950s. It was super to hear their stories of the wonderful time they had at Kingswood Trust back then and...this week. 😀
If you are aged 65+ why not join us for Nature Connections this Saturday. A guided walk of the site starts at 10.30am on the car park for those interested. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/nature-connections-tickets-146760174633 @DefraGovUK @HeritageFundUK #schoolvisit
