Last Sunday we attended an excellent talk by Stephen Poulter, who shared some of his fascinating historical research into his home village of Needham. Stephen is the newest member of the Waveney Heritage board and is set to begin a research project that will also include the neighbouring village of Brockdish. Stephen launches the project at the Waveney Heritage Centre in the old school, Brockdish on Sunday 4th. March at 2.30 pm.
He is keen to emphasize that all you need to join the project is enthusiasm – you can acquire the research and recording skills you will need along the way. Stephen and experienced group members will share the expertise needed both formally and informally.
Waveney Heritage have applied for a Heritage Lottery grant to assist with this project. A successful application will help with the publication of the research as a book and website. If you are interested in the villages, or simply wish to acquire new skills, you are most welcome to attend. Refreshments will be provided.
