Top story on BBC online news, about young people’s project work at Thomas Hardye School.

Young people will be presenting their findings back to an invited audience this coming Monday at 1.30 pm. If you would like to attend please get in touch.

Rollerskates, a collection of Sindy dolls and Steiff soft toys, all from the 1960s, have already been uncovered during the scheme.

Roller Skates

Roller Skates fitted over your shoes. They were no where near as safe as those you would buy today. This pair are rather small and only fit up to about a size three or four shoe inside them even though they are adjustable. They are however, just as good as they were when they were new.


The archive, which is being collated by pupils at Thomas Hardye School, Dorchester, will be stored at Dorset History Centre from December.
