Artefacts & container moved to CLASP Field Centre

From Dave Hayward, Chair of CLASP Trustees:

At last we have all of our artefacts and our shipping container moved to the new Field Centre from its previous home at Whitehall Farm. This means that we are now complete at our new home and we can move forward with a stable life to develop both our members and our future research programme. As Chair of Trustees I am keen to see not only our existing members participating in this future but also as many new members as we can recruit.

Can I also thank all of you that were involved with the move of a seemingly endless line of dirty boxes of artefacts onto and off of the lorry between the two sites. It is probably fair to say that there were more boxes than what we had estimated – there did seem many painful backs by the end of the day! (At least a couple of boxes came complete with old mouse nests!)

I anticipate photos of the event will follow.

Heyford Books have posted a video of the move on the CLASP Facebook page
