Attached is the programme for the GLHA Day on 24 October, where the topic will be Immigration and Emigration to, from and within Gloucestershire.
As well as a line up of interesting speakers, many Gloucestershire local history societies will have displays on the theme. Cecile Hunt and Mary Sullivan have been working hard on our display, which will feature the Bledisloe New Zealand Trust, set up in the early part of the 20th century by the first Viscount following his term as Governor of New Zealand. Its aim then was to support people wishing to emigrate to NZ. The Trust is still functioning, but now with more emphasis on study periods and the like rather than emigration.
I'm sure it will be a fascinating day, so do take the time to go along.
