Cheslyn Hay Local History Society Newsletter – 27th September 2020

Events
This time last year we were all busy getting ready for our Annual Exhibition, it has always been  the high point of the History Society’s Year.  All the hard work of our Committee members and friends under the direction of Roger Moore culminated into an unforgettable day. Lets hope we will all be able to meet again next year for the show stopper of all shows.
