We look back to the Free Press this week in 1999.
Learning became even more fun at Long Sutton County Primary School with the opening of Octoplus, a new resource centre, a dedicated area for the library, computers and for small work groups.
The room was formerly an open area between corridors which had been been enclosed and roofed.
A reception was held and guests included Thomas the Tank Engine author the Rev Christopher Awdry, while Year 6 pupils gave guided tours of the school.
Bus request stop-over from winner in ’99
Lucky competition winner Keith Mizen had a rather large problem concerning his prize - where to park his newly-acquired single-decker bus!
Mr Mizen, from Holbeach, won the 45-seater in a competition run by the Bus and Coach Preservation Society magazine.
Tube train driver Mr Mizen said: “When the editor rang me to say I had won, I thought he was having me on. Then my next thought was ‘what the hell am I going to do with it?’!”
