Ridgeway School 110th anniversary - request for any old photos or film

on Mon, 10/05/2021 - 7:05pm

The Ridgeway School in Childrey will be 110 years old in 2023.

The headmaster and former Westcot resident Charlotte Shalgosky have come up with an idea to mark the occasion - they are hoping to collate and curate still/moving images of the school through its 110 year history.

As a first step, they are appealing to the community to see if locals can track down old photos of their school days (the older the better), with the idea of reproducing them for an exhibition.

It's possible that families have come across copies of the annual class photographs of the three classes (known as Bottom, Middle and Top Class) or there may be old photos or ciné film of the school's annual Christmas pageant or Sports Days.

If you have anything, please contact Charlotte on 01926 612763 or by email at [email protected] (ideally with a copy of the photo and a contact number).
