I just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and staff for making our class visit to Cromford Mill this Tuesday a superb experience. All the children have been buzzing, the day was a memorable one for all... so many parents commented on the amazing facts coming from their children. .. I know it takes a massive effort to prepare all the practical activities and costumes in advance but it was a joy to watch the children take part. You were all great characters and your acting brought the story of Cromford Mill /Scavenger Boy alive for us all.
