Gilmorton Village History Group Update – April 2019

Don’t forget our next event GILMORTON FAMILIES is on Tues16th APRIL at 7.30pm and again on Wed 17th at 10.00am both in the village hall.

Our investigations have turned up some quite interesting and surprising facts about the old Gilmorton families and Martin Bloxsom will be giving us a talk on both days about his own family.

Our breaking news is all about an email we received from Australia. It came out of the blue and has developed into a fascinating display about a very old family from Gilmorton and one of our most iconic buildings. To date, little was known about this family and the history group has no information in their records… until now. You will have to come along to find out more!!!

Our new free quiz will be running again so have a go. There’s a great prize on offer.

Membership renewal is still available at this event, visitors’ entry is just £2 pp and you will receive a warm welcome with free refreshments.

Our first social event for 2019 is a SKITTLES EVENING and the confirmed date is Friday 26th April. A bar is available with extremely low prices and if you require any food/snacks you are welcome to take your own. The venue is the Wycliffe Bowls Club along the Leicester Road (by the football ground) so there is little travelling to do. The cost is £2 per person and there will be a raffle. If you are interested then please let us know and how many are in your party. You can bring along family and friends –make up your own team if you wish (max 10). This social event is getting close now so get your names in PLEASE. If you require any more information or to book the skittles night please phone - Katie Soars.

The second social event is another trip (by popular demand) to The National Memorial Arboretum with the confirmed date of Monday 17th June. There is no definite cost yet as this will depend on numbers wishing to go but it is estimated between £12 and £15. If you require any more information for this trip or to book your place please contact Sue Jackson.

The confirmed dates and themes for the remainder of 2019 are:

JUNE 18/19    – A WALKTHROUGH THE VILLAGE

SEPT 17/18     – THE DAY WAR BROKE OUT

NOV 19/20 – WAR THEME NOV 27th – AGM 2019
