This term Year 2 have been learning all about the champion rower Ann Glanville. Ann was born in Saltash and was married to John Glanville, who worked as a waterman – someone who rowed people and cargo across the River Tamar. Together they had 14 children and when John became ill Ann took his job to provide money for their family. She was tall, strong and very good at rowing.
To help the children identify what life may have been like for Ann, the children had a very informative trip down to the Hayle Pilot Gig Club.
