As we look back over 2017, it is hard to believe that the Archive has come so far. In the spring we realised that we would have to formalise our collection and have a constitution and bank account in order to raise much needed funding and professional help in cataloguing – after all we are not much help if we cannot find items you want to view!
Our first AGM will be on Monday 5th March at 7.30 pm in the Hub. Anyone interested in the Archive will be very welcome to attend.
In April we had a display of school photographs from 1900 - 2000 at the Hub which was later shown at the school, this created a lot of interest. In November we held an exhibition of prominent Stalbridge business men from the Victorian age which was well attended and again many people enjoyed. Thank you all for coming to see what we have collected and a very big thank you to all those who have gifted items to the Archive or loaned them to us to copy for the enjoyment of future generations.
