Cheslyn Hay Society Newsletter – 19th January 2020

No events this week.
Malcolm Podmore and Dave Washington represented the History Society at a Lifestyle Roadshow in Pinfold House last week.  The residents were very interested in our society so we have decided to leave a copy of our newsletter each week in the lounge for them to read and hopefully comment on. We hope to be able to visit Pinfold House occasionally to talk to some of the older residents about their memories of our village 

Our Salem Base
Our Salem Base is open from  9am – 2pm every Tuesday
