The River Carnival is nearly here! Drop in at The Pavilion for the History Group's special River Exhibition on Saturday between 10 and 4. We also need helpers to welcome and interview people who drop in about their memories of the area. If you can help, please let Bill know.
The grant application by the Bartonsham Row Ditch Community Archaeology Project was considered by the Heritage Lottery Fund last week & unfortunately was not passed. Many successful projects do not receive funding on their first application. The volume of applications on this occasion was particularly high & the HLF is keen to support the project. We are being encouraged to make some amendments & apply for reconsideration at an early date. Stay tuned!
On the even of the River Carnival, hear Heather reveal the stories of the barges, bargemen and their cargoes as they plied their trade between Symonds Yat and Glasbury.
