LHS’s autumn event on 15 November was a great success
As well as a programme of interesting and entertaining talks, our autumn event this year was combined with the formal opening of the new ‘Lodsworth Community Archive & Study Centre’.
It was an evening of fun and enlightenment with talks by Wendy Walker, the West Sussex County Archivist, and by Ian Buckingham on ‘Misfortune, plague, death & burial in Lodsworth’.
The new centre, just off the main hall within the Lodsworth Village Hall, brings together all the books, publications, documents, maps and photographs that we and other Lodsworth clubs and societies have amassed over the years. These are available for parishioners and visitors to study. Help is available for those wishing to research their family, their property or other aspects of the history of our community. And our computer system is there for everyone to use to study local and family history.
The new centre will be open to all on Tuesday mornings and at other times by arrangement.
