Society AGM

Due to coronavirus restrictions we are unable to hold physical meetings at our normal location. The committee has therefore taken the decision to postpone the meeting until it is deemed safe for us to get together again.

A full set of accounts will appear in the November 2020 edition of our Journal – Buckets & Spades.

PLEASE NOTE:- COVID Restrictions

  1. All  Society Meetings are cancelled - unless by Zoom
  2. The Free Help Sessions on Saturday afternoons have been cancelled until further notice

MONTHLY NEWSLETTERS                        

The November 2020 Newsletter  has a shortage of new resources this time - perhaps you can suggest some? - but looks at inaccurate original documents, pandemics, Remembrance Day and suggests that we collect War Memorials from each of our parishes.

Our Free Websites page provides information about a variety of websites that are free to view. If you can recommend any to be added to this list please let us know.

May they Rest in Peace - A new book commemorating the men of Bleadon, Hutton & Locking who gave their lives in the First World War. - Only a few left! - Details here.
