Buffet lunch for volunteers – a small token of thanks for all their hard work ………..from the Boxford History Project
We estimate that 250 visitors came to the Open Day – the marquee was the visitor centre!
Even the police force turned up to show their interest and offer help

The trenches are backfilled now ……..to keep everything secure and preserved. Hopefully we will be back on this site to uncover more treasures. On a personal note, I have to say that it has been an absolute pleasure to work with this group – from novices to professionals. It must be something to do with being covered in mud a large proportion of the time! If you have any good photos of the Open Day, please email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Some have been forwarded to the Newbury Weekly but I don’t know if they will be included in this week’s paper. Many thanks. Joy
