1950's OOs

When the Momentum Hall was built John was invited to come along to the opening ceremony with cricketer Charlotte Edwards MBE. John was surpirsed to learn that there were no toilets attached to the Hall and decided to make a gift to the School to build some.

Many planning wrangles later and John was able to visit the Momentum Hall this week to see the outcome of his donation. The Hall now has a block of six gender neutral, self-contained toilets.

Thank you John. Your gift will be appreciated by many people over the coming years.
