Blown away doesn’t even cover it!

Words are simply not adequate so get yourselves down here as soon as you can. Below is an eBook with lots of information about Hartlepool, the Tall Ships event and some ideas for you to use in class. What an amazing part of the world we live in to be able to host such unique events that can inspire our young people.
