Extract from the Minutes of the Board of Guardians in October 1842
This extract shows that some care was taken to provide the children with distractions during their time outside. The girls were to be provided with skipping ropes and the boys with a swing. There is evidence of the swing in an undated photograph, which has since been removed.
