This year, due to an invite from Tutbury Castle Trust, we are having two outings.
JUNE 6th 2018 – There will be a trip consisting of a morning at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas, followed by a visit to Tutbury Castle. There will definitely only be 1 coach laid on so tickets will be on a first come basis. The details will be released when known.
PLEASE CONTACT ROGER MOORE TO REGISTER YOUR INTEREST AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY YEAR TO ALL OUR READERS
2017 HAS BEEN A HARD YEAR FOR THE COMMITTEE AND RESEARCHERS . IT STARTED WITH OUR CHAIRMAN, TREVOR MACFARLANE STANDING DOWN TO BECOME SOCIETY SECRETARY AND THE INSTALLATION OF MALCOLM PODMORE AS OUR NEW CHAIRMAN. THE COMMITTEE HAS BEEN REJIGGED AND AREAS OF RESEARCH ALLOCATED TO MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE TO GIVE MORE STRUCTURE TO OUR STUDIES.
2018 SHOULD BE ANOTHER YEAR OF HARD STUDY, EDUCATION AND DISPLAY. WE ARE INCREASING OUR TALKS OUTPUT AND ARCHIVING WITH THE DATABASE NOW CLOSE TO COMPLETION.
WATCH THIS SPACE AS WE EXPAND.
A pleasant day at the Bridgtown & District Local History Society Annual Event
15th October saw our display at the Bridgtown Annual Event. The event, at the Bridgtown Social Club was well attended and we sold £55.00 worth of CHDLHS items. The desk was manned by Trevor & Jan Macfarlane, Malcolm Podmore and Dave Washington and we were joined by Great Wyrley History Society and the Lichfield and Hatherton Canal Trust as well as the hosts. Many of the visitors were members of both History Societies as many worked in Bridgtown and all commented favourably on the Event.
2017 ANNUAL EXHIBITION A BIG SUCCESS
THIS YEARS EXHIBITION WAS AS POPULAR AS ANY WE HAVE HAD. THERE WAS PLENTY TO SEE AND DO AND THE LAYOUT WAS EXCELLENT THANKS TO THE WORK OF ROGER MOORE AND HIS TEAM.
