During 2013 and 2014 we helped raise funds to bring a super Second World War experience to Finningley Church. This event was held over two days, the Friday so that two classes of local school children could attend and the Saturday open to the anyone else interested. It was an absolute success.
The children really enjoyed touching objects from that era and learning about life during the Blitz. Paul and Linda, who own and maintain the museum were brilliant and we can’t thank them enough for making the long journey. In particular their Air Raid experience featuring a carefully crafted audio track and the visual effects were stunning. We have very few dry eyes in the audience afterwards.
Thank you to everyone in the Village who helped us raise money, contributed what they could and came a long to make a good day, great!
