MORE MYSTERY OBJECTS SAVED FROM THE SKIP! (Update)
Two more items saved from the skip in the clear-out of Grey Friars in preparation for Essex County Council’s sale of the premises may be of interest to local families.
They are badges of office for the Chairmen of the Youth Councils of Colchester and Clacton between 1947 and 1971.
A larger photo plus the names of those who are mentioned are listed in this downloadable/printable document, click here> Youth council medals
They are currently in the possession of our Grey Friars history project. Suggestions as to how these may be passed to a more appropriate custodianship are welcome.
MANY THANKS TO ALL RESPONDENTS BY EMAIL, PHONE AND WEB! WE HAVE NOW ARRANGED TO REUNITE THE OBJECTS WITH TWO PAST HOLDERS. SUCCESS!
