Invitations and programmes for non-Bedford College of Physical Education events

Scope and Content

Invitations and programmes from schools, physical training colleges, training colleges, other institutions with an interest in education, and churches requesting the attendance of the Principal and/or staff at events such as speech days, prize giving, concerts, various church services* and formal openings, etc. Occasionally Eileen Alexander was invited to speak and/or award prizes at these events or students of the Bedford College of Physical Education gave a demonstration (including ornamental swimming). The variety of organisations represented demonstrates the social links the College had with other institutions.
