Prep Six had a fantastic day out as evacuees. Taking the train from Teignmouth they arrived at Dawlish to be met by a WVS representative and the Mayor, Angela Fenne. They were then marched to the museum for workshops about wartime Devon, rationing and shopping and the Evacuees Room. They all had the chance to meet a real evacuee , who explained what life was like and then went on a walk around the town to see how much it had changed since the war. After a talk by the waterfowl warden they met at the bandstand to receive their sweets rations to be claimed at nearby Jen’s Sweets.
Finally it was back to the station for the return trip and a big hug with awaiting parents. Many thanks to all at Dawlish Museum for their hard work.
