This newsletter replaces Redditch History Matters, which was produced and distributed from August 2011 to April 2019.

We plan to produce an annual journal of extensive articles on Redditch History in the first quarter of each year. Please follow our news bulletins concerning this and we are happy to receive any contributions. Please contact our Archivist, Derek Coombes, at our e-mail contact@redditchhistory.org.uk.

A link to the current newsletters and to an archive of the earlier version can be found at:


Our next Meeting at the Oasis Christian Centre is on Monday 14th October beginning at 2.00 pm.

The presentation is entitled ‘Bordesley Abbey’ and is given by Don Vincent, who has done much research on the subject and is a volunteer guide for the Abbey ruins.

Please visit our website for all the latest information on our activities.
