Pupils and staff from Culmstock Primary School with members of the trust on a recent visit


Louise Heap Culmstock Primary School commented “ During a recent World war 2 topic day, we were fortunate enough to have the help and guidance of Brian & Steve from South West Airfields Heritage Trust; Their assistance being invaluable in helping us to deliver a local history study to KS 2 Children

With their help and very hard work, an immersive WW2 day was delivered; involving national, international, and local information.

All children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were engaged by the opportunity to investigate real artefacts and also by the experience of working alongside, being taught by, and asking questions of these experts.

We were very grateful for the  assistance of both Brian & Steve; their enthusiasm, expertise, and professionalism enabling us to effectively deliver an unforgettable topic and day”
