The exhibition featured stands for all schools in the town, both past and present, and saw everything from photos and school books to equipment and even uniforms on display.

There were items from junior schools at Barway and The Shade right through to Soham Grammar and St Felix House.

Residents were also invited to bring along any items or photographs that may have been of interest to add to the Soham Heritage and Tourism group’s exhibition.
