Dear Members

FIRST UPDATE 2019
We do hope you had a good Christmas and New Year and have recovered nicely.

We are back in action again for 2019 which we hope will be slightly different from past years. We have retained our usual Tuesday night / Wednesday morning format which has been mainly dictated to by the availability of the village hall. We hope to introduce other “attractions” throughout the year but more on that when we have confirmed details.

At our first committee meeting we finalised the dates for the coming year. The themes for those dates have been pencilled in but are subject to change at the moment apart from the first one. As always, you will be notified well in advance of any changes.

Definite dates and proposed themes for your diary are:

FEB 19/20 – GILMORTON HISTORY GROUP – OPEN DAY
APRIL 16/17 – GILMORTON FAMILIES
JUNE 18/19 – A WALKTHROUGH THE VILLAGE
SEPT 17/18 – TRANSPORT
NOV 19/20 – WARTHEME
NOV 27th – AGM 2019

The first event FEB 19/20 – GILMORTON HISTORY GROUP – OPEN DAY. It is more of a social meet and greet with refreshments, raffle and bric a brac. Aimed also at new folk who can just drop in and see what we are about. On display will be a Time Line of the Gilmorton History Group. It should give a better indication of when and how we started and the progress we have made together with some of our completed and organised folders for each event we have put on in the past (This work is still ongoing).

There will be a little bit of work for everyone to get involved with. We aim to create a Gilmorton Village Time Line. Starting from 1900, and going to the present day, we would like contributions from everyone. Using a simple ‘Post It,’ method, just enter a date and then something that happened on that date. It could be a wedding, a disaster, a funny occurrence, the start or closure of a village group, a celebration etc. etc. Anything at all that comes to mind about Gilmorton. There will be display boards available for each decade 1900, 1910, 1920 etc so just stick it on the appropriate board. Youcan do as many as you wish.

As usual, members have free entry with non members paying just £2 on the day.

For those who have not renewed their membership - this is a golden opportunity to do so. It’s just £8 for the year. As always, members gain free entry to all regular events, free refreshments, regular updates and first notification of special events/trips and first choice with any ticket sales.

November was an extremely busy time with the Gilmorton Remembers day, our Nov event and our AGM all in quick succession. Sickness and Christmas and New Yearfollowed and we have had no time to work on our Web Site. This will be rectified and a date has been booked to commence work on its preparation.
