We have now raised £4,000 for The War Memorial Paving Fund but if you haven't purchased a paving brick 
or made a donation please consider doing so and help us to carry out this improvement by November 2018.

Digital Archive

Starting with the creation of this website, we aim to get our collection of images, documents and audio files converted to a digital format and stored online for everyone to access. We recently purchased Community Chest archiving software and are currently cataloguing and scanning many of the documents we have to make them accessible via the Community Chest database. We are always keen to accept new material for our archives either as the original or as a digital copy.
