July 2021 Newsletter

The July edition of our monthly newsletter is now available.

This is, again, an 8-page edition with, we hope, some interesting articles and updates..

This will be the last newsletter before we recommence the meetings and I am planning to give an extended write up of the presentations given at meetings in future newsletters.

You will find it at http://www.redditchhistorysociety.org.uk/newsletters/2021_3_4_July_Newsletter.pdf

This is a pdf file of about 2 MB but should not be a problem if you are viewing it with the pdf reader in your web browser.

A link to the current newsletters and to an archive of the earlier version can be found at the Newsletter tab of our website at www.redditchhistorysociety.org.uk

It is very exciting to restart our meetings as it is now 17 months since our last meeting, and it will be so good to have an audience again.

We are putting all measures in place to ensure the safety of everyone concerned and I hope that you will be reassured by the procedures described on page 2 of the newsletter.

There are no plans currently to stop producing the 8-page edition if there is the material to fill it. So, if you are willing to write a short article for the Newsletter, whether it is the history of the area or general views on history, I will be happy to receive it.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the meeting at the Oasis Christian Centre, Plymouth Road on Monday 9th August at 2.00 pm.

Take care and stay safe.
