OutputThe Sixth SLP ‘Normansfield and the Written Word: Correspondence and Newspapers’ commenced in September 2019 with a final presentation planned for early 2020.
One of our newer members said, ‘These Shared Learning Projects (SLPs) are a wonderful opportunity to visit local archives and libraries to discover information about a subject I know little about and to share this acquired knowledge with others’.
The first SLP in 2013 explored ‘Normansfield – The Early Years 1868 to 1913’ followed by (2014) Long Stay Institutions for People with Learning Disabilities, (2016) The History of Normansfield’s Buildings, and the 4th project (2017) The Staff who worked at Normansfield 1868 – 1997.
