This is our tribute to Terry and Deanna,
without whose inspired quick thinking and financial
help when the school first closed, there would not have
been an Old School to host our little museum at all.


The Museum is inside The Old School,
founded by Mrs Merrill Rhodes in
the 1990s, with unflagging and
tremendous support from her
husband Peter, and opened first as
a Family History Resource Centre.

Along with an enthusiastic team
of 'Founder Volunteers', so many
artefacts were donated for exhibition
by local families keen to support it
that it quickly became a very good
folk museum in its own right,
as well as a centre for
Family History research.

That research carries on, every week,
helping visitors locally as well as
former Sutton & Wawne families
now residing all over the world
by email and the internet.
     
Above, Merrill in 'costume' for one of the
museum's 'Victorian Weekends', and with
her helpmate husband Peter, showing the
restored 'magic lantern' he used for so
many fund-raising talks and slideshows.
  
A proud moment receiving Hull's Lord Mayor,
Cllr Mary Glew, in 2015, and in full flow
giving one of very many famous talks on
Sutton and Wawne's long and unique history.

Good Tip:
We would recommend copying the whole of this DVD, around 1.55Gb in total, onto your hard drive, or to a memory stick or camera card. It will work much better that way, and photo sets especially will load a lot faster. Some of the sections have dozens of photos, and the DVD takes a long while to load them all on many machines. There are no restrictions or copyright issues in copying this DVD to another format for your own use; we want you to enjoy and benefit from it's contents in whichever way is best for you. Please enjoy.
