Local History club visited All Saints Church in Church Street. They met Father Stuart who told them about the history of the church, they did some brass rubbings and were even allowed to ring the bell!
The Local History club is busy preparing their entry into Enfield's Blue Plaque Competition. They have visited the blue plaque for Charles Coward in Chichester Road and have researched his story. The presented that story in our Remembrance Day assemblies, impressing our guests from the Royal British Legion with their knowledge. Then we had to decide which "unsung hero" should get a blue plaque. We asked Mrs Margaret Darling, a former teacher at the school to come to tell us about her mother-
This is the finished blue plaque for Joyce Darling. All of the symbols were researched and designed by club members who also each made one of the poppies in the wreath. Mrs Pearson put everything together in the Christmas holidays.
The Local History Club visited the house in Chichester Road that has an English Heritage blue plaque to honour Charles Coward who lived there between 1945 and 1976. They found out that Charles Coward rescued prisoners from Auschwitz Concentration Camp in WW2.
Three generations of Joyce Darling's family came to an assembly where we explained what all the motifs on the plaque meant. Please see the PowerPoint presentation if you want to find out more.
