Swallowfield Local History Society


Welcome to the October 2019 News Letter


Swallowfield Local History Newsletter

Thursday, 17th October 7:45pm for 8:00pm.

Rose Room. Swallowfield Parish Hall.


The summer months reach their pinnacle with the Swallowfield Show. The months preparing our display are rewarded by people being really interested in the ‘Then and Now’ exhibition which showed buildings in Swallowfield, Riseley and Farley Hill as they were in the 18th and 19th centuries and as they are now. People are keen to know the history, especially if they have recently moved into one of our older properties. Our Archivist will point them in the right direction so they will have the fun of discovering, for themselves, the history of their new home.


We welcome back Percy who regaled us of his life in the Cavalry Regiment.

He is a true raconteur and we have persuadedhim to come back and tell us what happened when he left the Regiment. We look forward to his visit when he will fill in the years with more fascinating tales of working in diverse settings until his retirement.


Our meetings are usually on the third Thursday of the month in the Rose Room at Swallowfield Parish Hall at 7.45pm for 8.000pm. Visitors are always welcome.


If you have any queries, please contact Ken Hussey (Chairman) on 0118 988 3650 or Maggie Uttley (Secretary) on 0118 988 2954 or kcuttley@aol.com.
