On the 18th of September 20 Aycliffe Angels, accompanied by members of their families and companions,  attended a special  Tea Party at St John’s School and Sixth Form College in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the Second World War working at Royal Ordnance Factory Aycliffe.  The Lord Lieutenant of Co Durham Mrs Sue Snowdon presented the Angels with Certificates of Appreciation.  Guests were also given a copy of the book produced during a project at St John’s a few years ago and had the opportunity to view the fine piece of stained glass crafted in their honour.  The entertainment included the showing of a DVD created of the project, an animation, and live music performed by students.  Our visitors were looked after by attentive students who greatly enjoyed hearing their stories.  One of the highlights of the occasion was the presence of a TV crew from BBC Look North and the resulting broadcast that evening.
