Brackley - Community Heritage Activity Centre
|Author: Kath Bonner-Dunham||Published: 4th March 2012 10:20|
Archaeo-Schools joins MCS to create a new community heritage activity centre for Brackley.
Following the success of a recent heritage and archaeology volunteer project involving students at the school, permission has been granted for Archaeo-schools to develop a much-needed facility to celebrate the heritage of the school and Brackley town. A focus group representing five areas of the community will work with Archaeo-schools to ensure that we offer something for everybody. Activities will include community courses with a heritage and archaeological focus; outreach packages for schools, colleges and community groups, and enhancement activities to extend an existing school's curriculum.
Within five years, this project aims to provide Brackley with a centre for heritage that can be used and enjoyed by all. Plans include securing funds to develop a permanent heritage display, an archive store and study facility and an exhibition space for local artists and much more. Magdalen College School has been at the heart of Brackley since 1548 and is the obvious location for this exciting new community venture. We believe that each person is a stakeholder in our local heritage and aim to ensure that we offer something for everyone.If you would like to donate your time, energy, expertise, experience, skills and/or funds to support your local Community Heritage Activity Centre (CHAC) or would like further information about courses and activities, we would love to hear from you.
