Please keep sending in photos and videos of what you are doing! I loved the Tweets this week from the Maths Department about their “virtual” trip to Bletchley Park. It made me (almost) feel we were actually there! I particularly enjoyed the inevitable visit to the Gift Shop. It was lovely to receive a response from Bletchley Park thanking us for our visit and hoping to see us again soon!
