Our Open Day

Thank you to everybody who came to our Open Day! It was very sunny and we were very busy – we hope everybody had a great day. Special thanks goes to everybody who helped make the day happen by running stalls, giving demonstrations and talking to our visitors.

 

Talk by Dr Sam Moorhead

Yesterday we were very lucky to be given a talk by Dr Sam Moorhead from the British museum. He told us all about how to identify Roman Coins and the coins that were found in Ipplepen.  Thank you for a really interesting talk!

Sid and Doris were painted by Judy and Hilary and cut out by the Carnival Club. A big thank you for helping to add life and colour to the entrance of our Info point at Ipplepen Methodist Church!
