New: Fact Finder Forum for 2014
On 3rd Tuesday of each month at Flackwell Heath Community Library,
starting Tuesday 21st January 2014 7 to 9 pm
The Local History Group will be holding informal evenings for members to come along and join in the topics we are currently exploring.
These evenings will provide an opportunity to find out more about our current topics,
or suggest and start new ones. So bring along any items of interest eg. photos, old papers, village memorabilia etc. There will also be the opportunity to add to our collection of spoken and written reminiscences of village life.
Don’t be put off if you have never done any research or are confused by computers.
You will have knowledge that complements the skills we already have. You can
spend as much or as little time as you wish and a helping hand will always be around.
See you there …
