The latest edition, and the final one for 2018, of our newsletter ‘Redditch History Matters’ is now available and can be found at http://www.redditchhistorysociety.org.uk/newsletter.htm
Of particular importance is our Forge Mill Exhibition for 2019 which is entitled “My Redditch Memories”. We all have memories from our past. You may have been born and brought up in Redditch and have memories of your school days; your first job; what you did in your spare time; where you went shopping; a sport you played or a team you supported and probably many more topics.
You may have come to Redditch with your parents; to start a new job, or to move near your family or perhaps to retire here and you too have memories of Redditch.
You do not have to be a member of the Society to contribute. This is planned as a ‘living history’ exhibition of the town with collected stories about people and events in the town from a wide range of residents. We plan to make this a true snapshot of the town to create an important archive.
You can read more on how to contribute at http://www.redditchhistorysociety.org.uk/exhibition.htm
In view of the interest we have found on Facebook concerning pictures which we are finding difficult to identify, Derek has decided to add a regular “Where’s This” feature to the Newsletter starting in 2019. We look forward to your support.
