Thirty students of the Rushden Academy have recently carried out some research on people associated with Rushden who made their mark on the world in various positive ways. They achieved this with the help of youth workers from Whitefriars Church, Rushden, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

More details are available at Rushden People Through 150 Years.

Could you help young people from your down or village do some similar research, to highlight that ‘something good’ can come from your town or village too?
