NEW BUCKENHAM'S VILLAGE SCHOOL

school

Did you go to the school? What do you remember? Although it closed in 1963, memories are still vivid and they will be shared at a special event at the end of November promoted by the New Buckenham Society.

We'll listen to entertaining short presentations and look at the extensive exhibition of documents and photographs. The display will show material gathered from the village, Norfolk Record Office and the National Archives. Tensions between central and local control, penny-pinching expenditure, pride and human fallibility are all there. There's also a poignant vignette from the Great War. If you went to the school, come and meet old school friends - there'll be plenty of time for talking!

This unique event in the village hall will be open to all, including those from outside the village, on Saturday afternoon 29th November from 2.00pm to about 5.00pm. Admission is free with tea, coffee and biscuits served.

If you have any photos or other memorabilia of the school that we can display on the day, please give us a call soon.
