Local History Day

Tina Lane

The committee had been planning to put on in the spring of 2022 the local history day that was planned for 2020 but postponed because of the corona virus.The intention was to have the same topic – the experiences of the local population in wartime – and with the same speakers as originally booked.

A combination of circumstances, including some speakers no longer being available, has led the committee to rethink that plan. A more recent consideration has been a majority view that now was not an appropriate time to address the chosen theme. (The minority view was that now is just the right time to remind ourselves of what the civil population experiences in war.)

The committee has decided not to hold the local history day in April 2022 but to defer further consideration until local, national and international circumstances become clearer. The present intention is to explore the possibilities of the local history day being held in the autumn of 2022, perhaps with a different theme yet to be chosen.
