Working with Schools and Colleges

Bailiffgate is working with a number of schools on projects aimed at encouraging awareness of our rich local heritage amongst future generations. Typical of these projects is the one featured below:

 

        

 

Jill Mallen (Bailiffgate Volunteer) and Joyce Jenkins (Headteacher) at the coffee morning on 19th September at Amble First School. The museum and school are producing a textbook for the school on the history of the school and town.

At the coffee morning local people brought photographs and other memorabilia and shared memories of their school days inspired by finding their names in the school's old admissions registers going back to 1941.
