From Sarah Parfitt

This is just a quick update to say how much I enjoyed being part of this year's dig. It has been an absolutely amazing experience and I learnt so much.

Before everyone disappears to have a very important break, I would like to ask you one final favour. Please could you share the Visitors' Survey with any friends and colleagues, who came to the dig. Although we had a Visitors' Book, it's important that we capture more feedback for Maria Evans from Our Community Enterprise and her colleague Chris Hayes, who was on site this week interviewing people. This will be incredibly useful for the project moving forward:


Maria and Chris would also like to gather "team observations". Chris has created an online observations' journal for staff, students, volunteers...). Please could you take a moment to note down key thoughts/comments/reflections/observations:


Should you have any questions about either of the above surveys, please contact Chris directly: chris.hayes@liveprojectsolutions.com.

Please do join our Friends of Cookham Abbey FB page if you haven't already and do post dig updates there too. This will boost engagement: Friends of Cookham Abbey Friends of Cookham Abbey Thanks so much again for overseeing all of the posts Fiona - you have done a great job!

Finally, I just wanted to share a few press updates for this morning:

*Professor Gabor Thomas will be on BBC Breakfast TV at 8.50am this morning.

*Father David Joynes from Holy Trinity Church will be on BBC Berkshire at 8.35am this morning.

*Student Jonathan Charmley will be on BBC Guernsey at 8.50am this morning.

*Jonathan is also going to be doing an interview with The Guernsey Press tomorrow.

Once again, many thanks. I am now taking a few weeks off to catch up on other work projects but look forward to catching up with Gabor and the rest of the team at the end of September to discuss the next phase of the project.
