We are also planning a number of trips including one to Sherborne School in April and the Keep Museum in Dorchester, with a special guided tour by the Curator, Major Nick Speakman which will be available to members in the first instance, so if you are not a member please consider joining.   

 

 ORAL HISTORY

We are currently compiling an oral history of the village and already have several villagers who are prepared to participate in this very important work.

Several of the interviews will be playing at the Chapel Museum open afternoons.

We feel that if we don't record memories now they will be lost and this shouldn't be allowed to happen.

So, if you feel that you would like to take part in this please contact either me, Lyn Harrison on This email address is being protected from spambots.
