Local History Group: May 2018 Update

Great Grandfather’s chair

In April the Group had its AGM followed by a “Bring and Tell” session; thanks once again to Bobbie, David, Wiz, Jane, Arthur, Andrea, Howard and Joan for their contributions to this (pictured: Bobbie’s old chair).

The last Group event of the season is on Monday 21st May when we have a guided walk around “old Kenilworth”, starting at 6.30pm from the Abbey Fields carpark. We will then have a summer recess and restart on Monday 29th October.

Local History Group: February 2018 Update

In January the Group were entertained again by Susan and her father Neville with their continued story of the history of the vicars of Marton. The slides from this talk are at this link.

There is no meeting in the hall in February, instead those that have booked up are going to be guided by Sheila Woolf on a tour of Stoneleigh. There are still some places available: let David know if you are interested. David will also coordinate lifts if you get in contact with him.

The next meeting in the hall is on 26th March when group members are giving a talk about the village chapel. All welcome, entrance fee £3, includes a glass of wine.
