Schools are the cornerstone of local communities and are an underestimated resource for local historians. Huntingdonshire Archives has recently saved records from schools that have closed permanently. These records give us a snapshot of the lives of the local young people, as well as showing how the school impacted the local community

The Zoom link will be circulated to members a few days before the talk.
