Local History 1
Local History 1 meets at Claines Scout Hut, 95 Cornmeadow Lane and is led by Dennis Chamberlain, with help from Val Hibbitt and John Wrightson.
The programme usually combines presentations from research by our own members with some invited speakers and visits out.
Virtual meetings have been held monthly from September 2020 and have included presentations on Dr John Wall, Earls Beauchamp and the Lygon Family of Madresfield Court, Fire in Worcestershire, Roman Worcester, Sheila Scott, Droitwich Salt and Worcestershire’s Literary Connections. Thanks are due to our group members who have researched and presented these talks.
Unfortunately, visits out have not been possible.
We plan to resume Face2face meetings from September 2021 and the programme will include talks on Richard Cadbury, King Charles II, King John, Worcester buildings, Droitwich Election Riots (1910), early emigration to Canada, Perdiswell Hall, Hanley Castle, Worcester Industry and Manufacturing, Metal Box, Worcester Art and Worcester Mayors. Hopefully, something for everyone.
Visits out are still in planning.
Group members are encouraged to suggest new topics and undertake some research. For anyone not wishing to collate or present the material collected, we have members willing to take the work further.
