Society news

Oral History Project

Around 18 interviews have now been completed covering a dozen residents.  Several extracts are now available to listen to at The Listeneing Bench in the grounds of Galleywood Heritage Centre which was unveiled on 1st July.  The intention is to update these every six months or so and to begin to make the collection of full interviews available at the Heritage Centre from later in 2017.


The next meeting is at 8.00pm on Wednesday 8th November 2017 when a member Malcolm Stuart will give a talk on Well Lane Galleywood, aptly named.

A list talks given/scheduled to the Society since it was formed to the end of 2017 can be found here.  List of talks to end 2017
