Past Events

Pub crawl of Old Lynn

Dr Paul Richards took us on a pub crawl of old Lynn on September 4th 2019. It was truly fascinating as Dr Richards is such a fount of information and stories of the people who inhabited the houses. We discovered streets which most of us didn’t know existed despite living here for years. The evening ended at the Ferry Lane Social Club overlooking the river with a welcome glass of refreshment.

We are planning visit Hardwick Cemetery with Dr Richards in 2020, probably in June or July when the evenings are longer and warmer. Do think about joining us it will be full of interesting stories of the folk who are buried there with or without monuments.

 

SHARP Archaeological Festival

The Heritage Group had a stand at the SHARP Archaeological Festival in Sedgeford on July 21st 2019. We took along a selection of finds from our Community Digs and were very pleased to get a mystery object identified. Click here to find out what it is.

 

2019 Local History Fair

We had a brilliant local history weekend this year with over 250 paying visitors plus members. We sold £290 worth of new books and our DVDs and made a good profit from the raffle. Click here to see the local press report.

Thank you to everyone who made the effort to come and help and visit the exhibition – we had some interesting queries and conversations and most of us have learnt something new about the village and the area.

Later in the afternoon our secretary Helena Aldis did a short telephone interview on the following programme Treasure Quest Extra Time, where she was asked about the exhibition, the heritage group and its activities. Click on the play button below to listen to her interview.
