Formed in 2010, the history group has grown into a thriving organisation with a healthy membership and well attended meetings. We decided early on to cut discussion of group business at meetings and instead engage a series of speakers to cover a wide range of historical topics. This has proved popular and meetings also provide a chance to meet and talk with other members.
The group meets at 7pm on the last Wednesday of each month, except August and December. The venue is St Breward Village Hall, near the Old Inn.
The group has had a number of successes including amassing an archive of over 3,000 photographs which have all been digitised, creating a highly successful World War I exhibition and the publication of a book of memories of older residents.
A lot of the work on our ever increasing archive goes on behind the scenes by a few dedicated members. Our aim is to make this available on the website.
