WESTBOURNE LOCAL HISTORY DAY – MORE TO COME

By | Village News | No Comments

The History Day went well.

We had lots of visitors, lots of interest and some nice compliments, which made all the hard work worthwhile.

The news is that we have committed to do the show again at Emsworth Museum. This will be for a much longer period thus Group members may not always be available but Query Forms and Museum Stewards will be. The scale may be slightly reduced due to space constraints, but will include as much as we can possibly squeeze in.

The dates are April 4 to 23, at weekends, Easter Monday and St. Georges Day.

Any further details will appear here and on the Emsworth Museum Website as available.
