The Anne Mooney Collection
When local lady, Anne Mooney came to Ampertaine to cast her election vote this year, she felt that she had walked into Villa Park! She was greatly taken by the children's work and displays relating to their Aston Villa Football Club.
Anne's connection to Aston Villa runs through her son and together they have gathered quite a collection of Villa memorabilia.She very kindly contacted one of our parents and asked that the children be shown some of her prize possessions. We thought we would share them with you.
If you look closely at the menu in our gallery, you'll see that it relates to a Millennium wedding...ANNE'S SON, ANTHONY, CELEBRATED HIS WEDDING AT VILLA PARK IN THE YEAR 2000!
We would like to thank Anne for her consideration and for sending 50 sticks of rock for our children who now know for sure that Aston Villa ROCKS!!!
Other items you will see are a 1995 Villa Vs Man. Utd programme and team list (WHAT A BENCH!!!), the famous 82 European Cup winning team (we met Ken McNaught, back row 3rd from left on our recent trip to Villa park), Anne Mooney dancing with Gary Shaw (The only Brummie in the 82 team!!!) and two Millennium souvenires from Villa Park.
