Both were present at the launch event, as was Anne May (nee Potter). Anne (below) also handed over on behalf of the Potter family a rare signed photo from the late Tom Mann MP, given to Annie and Tom Higdon as a gift for their work for the children of the Strike School in 1921, and a booklet called The Burston Strike School by Casey (published by the Independent Labour Party) and dedicated to “the Brave Women of Burston, who have since April 1914, nobly struggled against the tyranny of the countryside”.
