There are times when we feel overcome with papers, letters, books, photos. And things.

Even though Blewbury is quite a small village we do seem to generate a lot of records, so we are going to have a real attempt to collect all the stuff we have accumulated over the years and make it more accessible. For example, how many of us know that the Village Hall in 1926 might have been built next to the Load of Mischief? And what were the fashions in the 1930s and 40s? All information somewhere amongst our records. Our next meeting will be a sort-out of some of the boxes here; should be fun, provided we don’t get too sidetracked by interesting items as we do it. We hope all our regular members will come and help, and newcomers are always welcome.

The next meeting is on Nov. 8th at 8pm in the History Room, Parsonage Lane. Simply turn up, or to find out more, contact Audrey Long, 850427/ or Mark Palethorpe
