Cheslyn Hay Local history Society Newsletter – 13th September 2020

Our Salem Base…Closed

Last Tuesday’s was our first meeting for almost six months, and it was a tremendous success. Unfortunately, it was short-lived when the Government announced the ‘Rule of Six’ which means we have had to close again. However, Tuesday’s turnout showed that the members will support us as soon as they get the opportunity, so a big thank you to those who were able to attend and let’s hope its not too long until we can reopen again.
