Loan Boxes

These boxes contain a mixture of objects, photographs and information on themed topics. They can be used from classroom displays and teaching. They are great for drawing, photography and discussion too. For more information or to borrow a box please call 01236 638460. Boxes cost £55 for an academic term or £25 for four weeks with fees for late return at £5 per day.
