LHS autumn event – Opening of the new Lodsworth Community Archive & Study Centre – 15 November 2017

As well as a programme of interesting and entertaining talks, our autumn event this year will be combined with the formal opening of the new ‘Lodsworth Community Archive & Study Centre’.

An evening of fun and enlightenment with talks by Wendy Walker, the West Sussex County Archivist, and by Ian Buckingham and our team on ‘Misfortune, plague, death & burial in Lodsworth’.

The new centre, just off the main hall within the Lodsworth Village Hall, will bring together all the books, publications, documents, maps and photographs that we and other Lodsworth clubs and societies have amassed over the years. These will be available for parishioners and visitors to study. Help will be available for those wishing to research their family, their property or other aspects of the history of our community. And our computer system which will be there for everyone to use to study local and family history.

Don’t miss this landmark event.
