Postponements and Cancellations

Tomorrow’s rescheduled Not So Spooky Cemetery walk has been postponed indefinitely until such time as the weather is more favourable to the event. Those who have booked should already have received notification of this postponement.

Regarding our Annual Trivia Night which was scheduled for 4th June, we have decided to cancel this event. We are disappointed but we are throwing all our energies into a fantastic event later in the year. The Sands of Time Local and Family History Conference will be a must do on the calendar for anyone interested in local and family history. So, while we are sad that the trivia night isn’t going ahead, there’s so much to look forward to with the conference.
