Above: visit to Cotswold Woollen Weavers at Filkins with Pamela Richards. The slideshow hints at events, outings, studies and projects that live on in the memory - not all of them reflected in the pages of the Good History. If you can help with more names and dates or images please get in touch.
The Junior History Group of Eynsham Primary School published this journal from 1995-2006: editor Pamela Richards; documents below. It generally appeared twice a year, with support and contributions from many local residents. Three special issues covered Eynsham Inns (1997), a history of the school 1967-1999 and Aelfric the Teacher (2005).
“We are the only Primary School Group doing this kind of research and all our work is recognised by the Oxford Local Studies Centre.”
