BLEWBURY LOCAL HISTORY GROUP

December 24, 2018

2018 has been a busy year for the group, with village walks for other History groups, and the special Nov. 11th walk remembering 1918. 2019 events will start with the village clubs morning at the Village Hall on January 19th. Do have a look there at some of our other activities.

We are often given items for the archives that we are very pleased to receive. Recently we’ve been given a book written by Captain Layman’s son, a Rear-Admiral, no less, and the daybook of local builder, Bob Gilbert. That’s an interesting record of building costs in mid to late-20th century, and a record of repairs done to many village houses, of interest to anyone owning a pre-2010 house.

Next meeting is Tuesday, January 8th at 8 pm in the History Room, Parsonage Lane. Contacts: Mark at markpalethorpe@talktalk.net or Audrey 850427 or audreyrosettalong@gmail.com.
