 Public Meetings and Excursions for 2021

Sunday 27 February 2022Fox's Feast
Fox's Feast was an annual picnic from 1863-1879 for the Orphan School children paid for from the legacy of John Fox, an ex-convict who had been in an orphanage in England. His legacy also rewarded the best boy and girl each year with 10 pounds and a silver medal, known as the Fox's Medal. Each year the Friends of the Orphan Schools remember this highlight of the children's year by holding our own Fox’s Feast. Full details to come. All members and friends are very welcome.
