Fact Finding Forum at the Flackwell Heath Community Library

The focus of this month’s evening will be “the village in living memory”. Come and share
your recollections and possibly discover something new. Can you mark the spot where a WW2 searchlight was positioned? or where the doctor in Sedgmoor held his surgery? or where the Co-op was? Do come along and help us put our dots in the right place on the village map. Everyone is welcome. FREE entry.
