Harrold Heritage Group

We have now formed a Harrold Heritage Group, which will both promote interest in the history of Harrold and support the Harrold Centre redevelopment grant application to the Heritage Lottery Fund.  The group is set up as a sub-committee of the existing Carlton and Chellington History Society, many of whose members come from Harrold.

The first event of the Harrold Heritage Group was an open meeting on Wednesday 23rd April.   More than 50 local people attended to:

–          Listen to a fascinating presentation from John Tusting on the Harrold leather industry.

–          Review the progress of, and input ideas to, the development of the Harrold History Trail.

–          Discuss, shape, and contribute to the future activities of the Harrold Heritage Group.

–          Examine the plans for the Centre’s redevelopment and how the Heritage Group will contribute.

If you have not done so already, to express your interest in the Harrold Heritage Group contact Phil Briggs at philbmail@aol.com or call 720710.
