Let’s go on a History Hunt! This year at St John’s Schoolhouse we are asking questions and inviting you to hunt for answers in the Schoolhouse Museum, as well as around the St John's historic churchyard and church. This will be both fun and informative, with something for children 6-18, as well as family groups hunting together. Gold coin donation.
