The latest edition of our Newsletter, Redditch Heritage Matters, has just been published. I hope you enjoy its contents. This edition, and all previous Redditch Heritage Matters, are available at the Newsletter link on the Redditch History Society website where you can read it on-line or download it as a pdf by clicking the appropriate icons.
Band Stand Event
On Saturday 16th June there is a Victorian Themed Band Stand Event on Church Green from 12:00 ‘til 16:00. Lots of activities going on including a Brass Band, Singers and a Circus Themed display. The Society does not have a stand there, but we hope as many members as possible will support the event.
Beoley Fete, St. Leonard’s Church
On Saturday July 7th it is the Beoley Fete at St. Leonard’s Church from 1.30 – 4:30. You can park at the Village Hall and there is a free minibus back and for to the Church. Tony will be there promoting the RLHS there and I’ll be there with details of the Moons Moat restoration project. Again, please support these local events.
Subscriptions & Data Protection
The new GDPR data protection legislation means we must be stricter about managing your personal data. Therefore, if you do not re-join the society by the meeting on the 9th July this will be the last Newsletter notification you receive, and your details will be deleted from this mailing list. But all is not lost, you can re-join at any time and be added on again.
Our next meeting is on the 9th July 2018 at 2:00pm. As usual it’s at the Oasis Christian Centre on the corner of Bromsgrove and Plymouth Roads. At this meeting we will be showing a film about Redditch Local History.
Contributions to The Newsletter
The contributions barrel for the Newsletter is once again looking very dry. If you have research material, photographs or memories of old Redditch we would like to share them with our members. Please send electronically if you can but we will type up handwritten documents and scan photographs if needed.
