Swallowfield Local History Society


Welcome to the May 2017 News Letter


This months meeting will take place in the Rose Room, Parish Hall at 07:45pm for 08:00pm on Thursday 18th May.

Our guest speaker this month is Sally Ballard, whose talk is entitled ‘My Childhood Memories of Living in Swallowfield’. She starts us off on our quest to invite people who have lived themselves, or whose family have lived in Farley Hill, Riseley or Swallowfield, to a tea party on 15th June to gather more history of our Parish. Can you help us with possible names of old residents?. We are hoping to use their memories in a forth coming book on the parish.

Sally will also be hosting a guided tour of the village in July, starting at the church of All Saints. Details of this will be published in the July newsletter


We look forward to seeing you there.
