Work Experience – Day 3

Today I spent the day with the Mayor of Ollerton, and wrote up two stories involving her.

1. We visited Ollerton Primary School where she dug up the first crop of potatoes in their vegetable garden.

2. We visited her house where she had a collection of old wedding photos. The photos were being collected for an exhibition that we be held in The Dukeries Complex at the beginning of August.

I then spent the afternoon researching the Ollerton of Yesteryear committee who were organising the exhibition. I was quite interested in the purpose of their committee, to preserve the history of Ollerton and to make younger generations aware of how the town began.
