We found this blackboard in The old School in Jevington, now the village hall, when we became caretakers of the building 24 years ago. We were astounded to see that the actual writng had stayed on the blackboard for around 45 years!
We imagine that the blackboard had been used for something like a home guard information session on gases, something like Dads army perhaps!
