Kent Archaeological Review extract
 

Children Help in the Horton Kirby Appeal.
by Anne McLeod.

Having read about the discovery of the Horton Kirby villa in the National Press and hearing that there was an appeal for money, a group of 7-8 year olds at Wickham Common Primary School who knew Mrs Philp decided to help. Under the guidance of their teacher, Mrs Micklewright, they arranged a "Bring and Buy" sale which was held for the rest of the school. With a great deal of hard work they raised 12.53p and then settled down to write compositions about the event. We take great pleasure in being able to reproduce a few extracts of these here.
