April Newsletter 2016

OR-HIS-080The talk this month was by Rachel Cooksey who gave a very interesting talk about the Staffordshire Military Appeal Tribunals. Most records throughout the country were destroyed, this makes the Staffordshire collection particularly significant.

After a vote at the last coffee morning, we are reverting back to having our ‘OPEN MORNING‘ on the FOURTH THURSDAY, as this seemed to suit more people.

One of our members has a box full of copies of The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Aeroplanes, free to a good home. Anyone who is interested please see Diane Tolley.

OR-NUR-006

Don’t they have big toys these days!

I still have many photographs that have not got any description. This one just says “Nursery”. Does anyone know who these little cuties are? Any help is greatly appreciated.

We have had quite a busy month, on the 16th we attended the 50th birthday celebrations at St. Andrew’s church.
