The Director of the Bletchley Park Trust, Ms Christine Large, presented Millennium Fellowship certificates to parents with children at local schools to recognise the computing skills they have gained in an innovative on-line community history project.
97 parents from Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire and South Northamptonshire received their awards on Saturday, 10 February. They are the second group to complete their Millennium Commission-funded CLUTCH (Computer Literacy Understanding Through Community History) Club projects. The awards scheme is jointly organised by the Knowledge Media Institute and the Living Archive (a local documentary arts group.
The combined Web site from both groups of parents now has over 2000 pages of information about local history in the area. A final group of 120 parents commence their projects this week – their findings will appear on the Web in November 2001.
