What are your memories of the Institute? Do you have any photos of the building through the years? Do share them with us on social media, comment here. We'd love to hear them at our Talk, Tea and Cakes on 27th May too.
Would you have chosen a different cover? What image from the book do you think would make a great cover? Why not let us know at our Talks, Tea and Cake event on May 27th from 2-5pm in Balsham? Join us for a cuppa and quiz the team on how to make a book - Berenice, our award-winning designer and 'book coach' will be there to answer your questions publishing a book. You can find out about maps from Dr. Seppe Cassettari and buy a copy of Balsham, a village story 1617 - 2017. The team would also love to hear memories from current and former residents. All are warmly welcome whether you are a resident or not.
Already a queue had formed as the doors opened at 2.00pm and continued throughout the afternoon until closing time at 5.00pm.
In total 76 items were brought along for valuation. Martin Millard, Cheffins Director of Fine Arts proved very helpful and knowledgeable, and everyone went away very pleased.
As far as we know, there were no life changing valuations during the afternoon; if there was it was kept very quiet!
We are grateful to the Parish Council for allowing us to use the Pavilion, to Cheffins and to everyone who helped to make the afternoon a success.
Below are a few photos from the event.
We are busy planning the walk on Sunday 6th September. You'll see posters going up very soon in the area. You can download a copy here to put in your window, office or social area by clicking here.
You'll also find a copy of the sponsorship form in the centre pages of The Balsham Review, thank you so much to the Review team for helping with this.
