Dear all, Bad news I am afraid... the cafe has had to be cancelled today due to the heat. Hopefully, everything will back to normal next week.

As part of their 'Vile Victorian' topic learning, Year 5&6 paid a visit to the Oakham Museum and was able to experience what life was actually like during this particular era. An electronic device was nowhere to be seen! :O

100 years ago today the Royal Air Force was formed as a separate Service, independent of the British Army and Royal Navy – the first time that any country had formed an entirely separate and independent air force.

Yesterday a service and parade in Oakham marked the retirement of Rutland's Lord Lieutenant, 90 years of 504 squadron and 100 years of the RAF. Sir Lawrence Howard was also given the freedom of the town. Hear from some of those involved this morning with Rob Persani.
