Book launch and tea party

Throughout the years school headteachers have had to keep a school diary, and Carbrooke school is no exception.
During the second world war, the Headmistress, Miss Mary Norton, kept a fascinating record of daily life and events in Carbrooke, during the years of the war through her entries in the school log: a much admired headmistress, with an obvious care for the children in her charge.
Daily life went on as usual, admidst the highly unusual events bought on by war, particularly the kind involvement of locally based American troops.
The Heritage Group have transcribed, and printed Carbrooke school log, adding background photos and information.
As we begin commemorations for the start of WW2, we hope this is a fitting tribute, and launch the book with a traditional village tea party in the village hall.
Carbrooke Heritage Group would like to thank Carbrooke Parish Council, for funding the printing of the books.
