We celebrated our ninth birthday at our May 2016 Annual General meeting with a show and tell evening. Members brought along an item of interest and had 10 minutes to speak about it.

Peter Morton brought along a cannonball, Cresby Brown talked about Stroud Voices, Philip Wells spoke about Liddiatt Leftovers The Congregational Church Organ, Alex Walmsley about the Methodist baptism register, Andrew Cooke about an engraved brass dog collar and Shirley Dicker about Timbabild.

We finished off the evening with a raffle and refreshments and time to view the exhibits.

Kimmins Mill Dudbridge 1924, still there, right next to Sainsbury’s.
