History comes alive in Rose Hill Woods, a Sheppey Matters project for young people that took place in sittingbourne.
We had a fantastic celebration event at the Gore Court Cricket Ground at the base of rose Hill Woods. For those of you interested in what we discovered the head over to our Rose Hill website by clicking here.
A special event was held on Saturday 20th May, to mark the end of a yearlong exploration of what remain of Rose Hill House situated behind Gore Court Cricket Club.
Working with young people with additional needs, this project researched the history of the house, its occupants, its architecture and used digital technology to capture and document the discoveries and responses from the archaeological dig. For the young people, their involvement brought opportunities to develop new skills, interests and encouraging new hopes, confidence and aspirations. Importantly also, they connected with their wider communities and allowed the young people to have fun.
The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund – Young Roots and partnered by Swale Community & Voluntary Services (SCVS), the Historical Research Group of Sittingbourne (HRGS) and Sheppey Matters (Healthy HeArts project Funded by Colyer Fergusson Charitable trust).
