We have been asked to post a copy of the newsletter for Herefordshire Local History Society. Some of the dates have now gone, but there is plenty of information about things going on from now and into the year. Download the newsletter as a pdf here.
On the World War 2 memorial just to the north of the main entrance to St James’ church in Green Street is an intriguing inscription to the help given to the rebuilding of All Saints Church Chilvers Coton following its destruction in the blitz. It reads as follows:
Members of this parish have also furnished the chancel of the Chapel of the Three Kings in the rebuilt Parish Church of Chilvers Coton in the Diocese of Coventry destroyed by enemy action in May 1941.
Why did St James Hereford parishioners help with this specific church near Coventry? What was the link? Read a new article by local resident Naomi Bell explaining what she has found out.
An article by Bill Laws on the Bassom - Bartonsham's Bathing Hut - has been published in our new Topics section. Please take a look, and add any of your own memories or further information in the comments section underneath.
