The Oxfordshire Museum visited Brize Norton during its Village Day on 24th August 2014.  We had a marquee with an exhibition of historical items on loan from the Oxfordshire Museums Service. This included a collection of model carts and wagons that were made by a Brize Norton resident in the 1970s. The models are representations of trade vehicles used in the village in the 1920s and 30s.   This was the centre piece of the exhibition but we had other pieces of Brize Norton history as well - old objects and photographs of interest.  Following this the museum staff visited Brize Norton Primary School to engage the older children in the history of the village.
