Preserving your Past for the Future

 

 

Forthcoming Events

 

 

The Parish Project Group plans to hold several outings or events during the year. A list of our current events can be seen below.

Each of these events will be open to all members of the public, and not restricted to "members only". The group is keen to widen its membership on a more informal basis, and everybody will be welcome.

Forthcoming Events

 

St Andrew's Church Fete - to be held on Saturday 8th July

This year the theme will be  "Fore Street - Past and Present".

We will have our usual display, and will have photos and information on Fore Street - who lived where, who were owners or tenants. 1842 Tythe Map of Fore Street with house numbers. Also an exhibition of photographs from the early 20th century compared to present day photos. These can also be seen here - click: FORE STREET

 

Neil Cooper - his photos. 

A display of photographs from his years as an official photographer during many of the worlds natural disaters and war zones. Neil will give an illustrated talk about his work in all corners of the world, illustrated with a showing of his spectacular photos. The date to be confirmed.

 

The Project Group would also like to thank Tony Porter very much for generously giving his time to give a talk about his recent book "Whatever Next?" This raised £171 for us which will enable us to make donations to various parish causes.

 

These events are still to be confirmed, but we are hoping to host the following; 

 

Local English Heritage sites.

It has been suggested that the group might take a party of people to visit some of the local English Heritage sites. We are making further enquiries, and will give further information about this when we know more. 

Mount Folly Farm archaeological dig - open day.

For many years now there has been an archaeological dig for a few weeks in the summer on the site at Mount Folly Farm at Bigbury on Sea. In recent years the team has held an open day for everyone who is interested to go and see what they are doing and to find out what they have discovered, and members of the group went last year. It was so fascinating that they have suggested that we take a party to the open day. Further details will be posted here when we have them.
