Welcome to our Home Page - 2018 

We are a small group of local people who meet once a month in Shalford Village Hall. If you have a similar interest, and are interested would like to join the Association, please contact the Chair Barbara Mavis on 01371 851519 or the Secretary Sue Tarling on 01371 851595. Once a year, in April, we ask members for a small annual Membership Subscription of £10, which is used to cover the cost of hiring the Village Hall annex room for our monthly meetings. 

The dates for our meetings for 2018 are as follows:

All dates are Tuesdays. We meet at 2.30 pm until 4.00 pm in Shalford Village Hall.

20 February 2018, 20 March 2018, 17 April 2018, 15 May 2018, 19 June 2018, 17 July 2018,

21 August 2018, 18 September 2018, 16 October 2018, 20 November 2018 

We are currently researching the history of the Pyghtle (field and pastures adjoining St Andrew’s Church). We are asking villagers to write down their memories of the Pyghtle for our archives. 

Memorial Inscriptions

We have worked in the past on inscriptions on gravestones in St Andrew’s Churchyard. We will be carrying out some addition work on inscriptions during the summer months of 2018. We may be able to tell you where a distant relative is buried, if you would like to make contact with us, with name (s) and an approximate date of burial or death. 

Old Photographs

The group collect old photographs of all aspects of Shalford village life, people and places. We would be happy to scan and return any photographs, unless they are given as a gift to the Association. history01

Our Display Cabinet

There is a small cabinet on the wall, inside Shalford Village Hall. It can accommodate a very limited display of old implements, and artefacts of a small size. We change this display regularly throughout the year.
