NEWS FROM THE HISTORY GROUP

We are still active and constantly reviewing the situation regarding restarting our talks but our priority is that we can only do that when we are assured of your safety.
Meanwhile we have been busy. We have contacted some of the brilliant speakers you will have missed because of the pandemic and rebooked for a future date.

Bees and Beekeeping

Sue Jakeman will tell us everything that we ever wanted to know about bees and beekeeping and comes fully equipped for the part in bee suit and hive. Hopefully without the bees.
And if you’re a “Come Dancing “ fan, Sue has also offered to tell us about about the life and times of Peggy Spencer from teaching dancing lessons in the underground during the war to the favorite television series.

“It could only happen at a wedding!”

Another hilarious-sometimes sad talk from Margaret Burgon, recounting weddings she has experienced during 47 years as a vicar’s wife.

Baby Murderer?

Sophie Mitchell, an Historical Sherlock Holmes delves through the records to shed a light on crimes of yesteryear in Peterborough (and Werrington!)

Beginner’s House History

Debbie Freason and Carole Bancroft will tell you how to go about reconstructing the history of your house and if you live in a modern one- no matter because they will also share some fascinating anecdotes about their time recording rural buildings.

Lost and found !
No, not a talk but a reminder that from time to time some of our membership leave things behind after the meeting everything from cutlery to A Father Christmas singing Elvis Presley songs.
Anyone who thinks they might have left something behind during the year please contact a committee member.

The Werrington Local History Group meetings .. “an Update”

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We still have to continue the cancellation of our monthly meetings until further notice.

Hopefully we will soon be able to restart and
although advice is changing almost daily,
you will appreciate the difficulty
in giving future speakers fair notice.

Above all your safety is paramount and we will keep you updated as the situation changes.

Keep safe
