Shaftesbury Homes & Arethusa schools in Bisley
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 22:38 GMT (UK) »
I am a Trustee of Bisley Village Hall  which was previously the Chapel of The Shaftesbury School and the  Farm School in Bisley, Surrey.  The schools later amalgamated and were called Bisley School.
We have started a Heritage Project to bring together pictures, and memories  of boys who attended the schools and staff who worked there.
We have managed to contact boys who were at the school and some staff too.  With the help of Surrey Heath Museum and our local historian we hope to put together some lasting memory boards about the schools to be displayed  in the Village Hall.  We have a growing collection of pictures and other mementoes.
We are holding a presentation event  about the schools and an information gathering afternoon on Sunday 29th April 2018  2 -5 p.m.  at Bisley Village Hall   with tea & cakes. Please reply if you are interested and are able to come to this event or  contact via website
