Future work with schools
The activities with young people have been so successful and so well received that we are currently planning a large scale project with a number of primary schools in Enfield looking at aerial activity and bombing from both the first and second world wars.
Battle of Britain activity
Widening the aerial activity which took place over Enfield during World War II a taster sessions was delivered with Worcesters primary school. The sessions worked with primary aged children to learn about the early bombing over Enfield and a particular air battle which took place in the summer of 1940.
One visitor to the bomb map launch event was a child attending Chesterfield Road School when the V1 flying bomb hit. Aged 10 at the time she still has vivid recollections of what took place. We will be interviewing her and the transcript will be contributing to Enfield’s archives.
Launch and fire sculpture
Over 150 people attended the launch of the new Enfield bomb map. See events for more information and pictures.
