Looking Ahead

 

Bramcote History Group has concluded its meetings for 2021 but the events planned for 2022 can be viewed on the programme page. We hope you will come along to one of these sessions and discover what a friendly society we are.

Despite the challenges of recent times, our group has continued to thrive.

We swiftly mastered Zoom and large audiences were attracted by fresh presentations about aspects of Bramcote’s history as well as a variety of other local subjects.(See previous programme).

By late autumn we were able to venture back into our usual meeting place and greet one another in person, though socially distanced, rather than on screen.

There is an eagerness to resume our adventures into local history, membership numbers are high and new projects are underway. In the winter months, we hope that you will be able to help with our request for images and memorabilia for our May 2022 meeting — about Nottinghamshire’s baths and lidos. (See the research page). Please be in touch with suggestions for future meetings, ideas for projects, offers of help and any historical data you are able to share about Bramcote’s past.
