February 2015

Preparations are underway for our Spring Exhibition.  We plan to run an all day event at the Church Institute, Balsham on Saturday 21st March 2015.  It will follow along the same lines as our highly successful Feast Day held last July.  This time the hall will be devoted entirely to our project  and allow more space to exhibit the wealth of material we have acquired.

Once again, we will centre on the hand drawn Balsham map which will be complemented  by other maps relating to the same area; thus showing the changes that have taken place over the years. Also,  photographs, sales notices, census records will be on view throughout the day.

 We hope to provide facilities to enable members of the public to have their precious photographs or documents copied for future generations to enjoy; much as the group have been able to learn from material saved and kept for us to enjoy.

Looking further ahead, Sunday 6th September, 2015, in conjunction with Holy Trinity Church, a Parish Walk, around the boundaries is being planned.

In the meantime, make a note of the two dates and hope you will be able to join us.
