Bringing Local History to Life!

​On election day, Year 8 students at Alde Valley Academy were face to face with the women who fought for the vote over a century earlier; the Long Shop Museum has been working with the school to deliver a series of dynamic lessons exploring the key role played in womens’ suffrage by two local ladies – Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, England’s first female doctor, and Millicent Garrett, her suffragette sister.

​Look out for the students’ creative responses at the Long Shop soon! ​
