Mining Workshop

Many thanks to Chloe Phillips from Truro Records Office who came to visit the children in Tamar and Kenwyn classes yesterday. The children were able to get their hands on some fabulous documentation; an Ordnance Survey map of Redruth in 1907, census records for Perranporth from 1871 and a letter sent from a Miner who had migrated to Bloemfontein in South Africa to name but a few. This helped us to appreciate the scope of our Mining topic, and why it is such a vital part of our personal history.

Thank you so much for taking top he time to visit us, Chloe.
