January Edition of Redditch History Matters

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 Redditch Local History Society web site at:


where you can read it on-line or download it as a pdf by clicking the appropriate icons.

Remember Your Memories: Don’t forget we still want your memories for our 2019 Forge Mill exhibition. Please visit the RLHS website or contact me for more details.

Newsletter Contributions: I have now run out of contributions for the Newsletter. Finding or writing new items myself is time consuming when compilation and distribution of the newsletter itself takes time each month. Please support the Society by writing a few words about research you have done, your history in Redditch or dig out some old photographs for us to scan and publish. If we can’t get a regular supply of articles to publish we will have to revert to a much simpler newsheet¬† or perhaps just a quarterly newsletter.

Our next meeting is on Monday 11th February 2019 at 2:00pm.  At this meeting the talk will be given by John Cartmell and he will be building upon his talk last year on Researching Your Family History
