Official press release and photo shoot

Visit by Matthew Alexander and his class

We were honoured that the curator of Guildford Museum asked to show his further education class the Spike to aid in their studies of the Poor Laws.  A very enjoyable tour with a very interested and knowledgeable group of people.

Visit from Holy Trinity School Teachers

We will continue to encourage easy access and use of the Spike for everyone.  We plan to allow the local Primary Schools to use it freely when it is available.  Today a group of 15 teachers came on a fact finding visit to see what the Spike has to offer.

Guildford Heritage Open Day 

Although not officially on the circuit this year we had the Spike open on both the Saturday and Sunday.  In total we had some 50 visitors, many saying they were looking forward to coming back to see the Spike once we had refurbished it.
