Marton Village, Warwickshire

Local History Group: May 2019 Update

In May the Group had guided walk around historic Kineton, ably led by Mike Johnson (pictured). This took in many historic buildings from the church’s west tower, said to date from 1315, to the north side of the market square where there is a row of five tenements that were once alms houses dating from the early 17th century.

This was the last Group event until the new season starts in October. More details about the new season will be announced nearer the time.

Parish Council Elections – Last Call

This is a final call for anyone interested in being part of Marton Parish Council. If elected you’d commit to a meeting every two months, to help shape decisions on the upkeep and services for the village on a voluntary basis.

Contact Faye Chambers (Chair) for a form (or you can get one directly from Rugby Borough Council). These must be returned to the council offices by Wednesday (3 April) for the forthcoming May election.

Thanks,

Local History Group: February 2019 Update

Leamington Hastings Church

In February the Group had a (morning) visit to Leamington Hastings Alms Houses and church. This included the talk about the church’s restoration which was originally planned for the March meeting. Many thanks to Joan S. for organising this.

This means that there will no longer be a Group meeting in March and the next meeting will be on April 29th, 7.30pm in the village hall. This will be the Group’s AGM (free entry and free glass of wine), followed by Group members giving a presentation on “recent finds in the museum”. Do come along to the AGM so you can share your thoughts and ideas about meeting topics for the next season
