The Bedford Chronicles





As part of its 450th anniversary celebrations, The Harpur Trust has been delighted to be able to support The Bedford Chronicles; a beautifully illustrated and informative book to be enjoyed by children of all ages.  The Trust commissioned a special edition of the book and has gifted over 6,500 copies to every year 4 and year 5 pupil.  They have also given each school a class set to be used as a resource for future generations.
