In April the Group had its AGM followed by Wiz and Ann (pictured) presenting some of the fascinating “new” items found in the Museum. More about this below.
The next meeting is on 20th May, and is a guided walk around historic Kineton. More details nearer the time.
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.

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
In January the Group were entertained (yet) again by Susan and her father Neville with their continued story of the history of the vicars of Marton. The (new) slides from this talk are at this link.
There is no meeting in the hall in February, instead there is a morning tour around Leamington Hastings (Alms Houses and Church). Provisionally meeting in Leamington Hastings at 10.45am. Please contact Joan Sherratt if you wish to attend and she will let you know about the definitive arrangements.
The next meeting in the hall is on 25th March.
