Our regular events.

Mondays. We have a history group every 1st and 3rd Monday 1pm until 3pm. This  is a thriving group looking at how our area has changed over time; the buildings the facilities, housing and the community itself. Our intention is to collect all this information and documents . The group then hope to pull this together and put it into  print for all to enjoy. The next step, for those  interested to know about the history of their home, is to go back in time  to explore who lived there as far back as a hundred years  ago,  who lived there, what work did they do, and what was it like to live in Cornholme at that time.   Anyone interested should ask for Martin at the Old Library . telephone 01706 813222
