At present we do not hold any photographs or much other information about the visitors who would regularly arrive in coaches from across the country.  The resident children seemed to take the visits all in their stride – but there were times when the Pestalozzi staff deemed a break in the amount of attention was necessary to allow some stability in the children’s lives.

Do you have any photographic mementoes of a visit to “The Village”? We’d be delighted to accept a copy to add to our archive!                   Click here to get in touch with us!

Often the visitors were from groups who had already organised various types of support for the Village.  One of the most common efforts in the very ealy stages was the crocheting of squares to make bed-spreads for use in the children’s bedrooms.

Do you recall visiting the Pestalozzi Children’s Village in Sedlescombe during its early years?  Please get in touch with us – we would love to hear from you!
