There were fifty school children and four teachers in all and much to their surprise and delight, upon arrival at the Arcade, managers, Alex Rogers and Don Greenslade presented each child with a pouch containing a very old English coin and a leaflet which told them what that coin was and what it would be worth in today's money! They were absolutely thrilled!
The children then went off with their teachers to explore the Arcade and its many nooks and crannies, marvelling at the many curios that make Hungerford Arcade the special and fascinating place that it is!
The children from Liqueil had a fabulous time and I think the teachers enjoyed it as much as the children!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the children and the teachers of Le College Maurice Genevoix and to teacher, Dany Bosek organising the visit and making our day special. Thank you.
