Success for the Society at the GLHA Local History Day!

Our Society had a very successful day on Saturday at this county event, sponsored by the Gloucestershire Local History Association of which we are a member.

Congratulations to Keith Walker on being the 2016 Jerrard Award runner up for his article in the 2016 New Regard – second only to Nick Herbert who has been a professional historian and writer all his career. Congratulations to Nick too (who will be our November speaker).

Additionally, for the first time, we won the best display award. This means our display will be the first one featured at the new Gloucestershire Archives Hub when it reopens .

We will also show the display to members and visitors at our indoor meeting ​in Bream next month.

And of course, the day will be featured in our next members’ newsletter.

Well done to everyone involved!
