Blewbury Local History Group

February 23, 2018

We often receive emails from people who have relatives who used to live in the village.

We recently received an email relating to a former resident of the village giving us lots of information. The sender expressed surprise that, as there were still relatives living here, we did not know the details already. We explained that we can only record the memories that people want to be saved and are offered. How about sharing yours? One example could be to help with our project to record where all the men who served in WWI were living before 1914. Perhaps you know the name of the family living in your house then, or you know where your grandfather or even great grandfather were living in the village. If you do, and are willing to share the information, then please tell us so we can record it.

Next meeting is Tuesday, March 13th at 8pm in the History Room, Parsonage Lane.
