In conjunction with Wickham Market Village Hall's New Build Group we are organising a series of talks, to raise funds funds for the new Village Hall.
Working with the University of Suffolk, on Saturday 24th March, we put on an exhibition about the Basque Refugees in the Workhouse.
In 1938/39 nearly 100 children were evacuated from Spain to Wickham Market, where they stayed in the Workhouse, which is now Deben Court, and we heard about their experiences of living here.
