Well done everyone involved! See you next year!

We will be remembering the loss of the fishing boat Pioneer and three crew on the 1st April 1949 on this the 70th anniversary of the tragedy. We have a two board exhibition in our extension covering the story.

Dennis needs help to be able to open on some Sundays – do you have a few hours to spare on a Sunday? If so please contact History House 01424 424744, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our opening hours are dependant on there being volunteers to staff. In cases of sickness we may have to close. The History House will be closed Sundays in Jan. & Feb but the worry is it will have to close for the foreseeable future Sundays… unless help can be found…
