Dear KHAS Member,
This is a slightly earlier than usual reminder that there will be a KHAS evening walkabout on Monday July 10th. Sue Martin’s information about the event, as published in the June Newsletter, is given in full below:
The summer evening walkabout will be on Monday 10th July. We will meet on Bridge Street near the entrance to Abbey Fields car park at 7pm and will be out for about 1½ hours. There is a charge of 50p for parking at Abbey Fields during the evening.
The main events of the evening will be a visit to the Fire Station on School Lane where we will be able to view their historic artefacts and will hear a short talk on the history of the Fire Station from their longest serving fire-fighter. We will then go to Chapel Yard cottages to view the exterior of the cottages and the heritage plants in the garden, and where information will be available on the history of the cottages and their previous occupants.
At both locations we will collect donations for their respective charities; The Fire-fighters Charity and for blood cancer treatments. Please bring some change if you would like to contribute to these worthwhile charities.
We will also stop to view some other places of historic interest along our route.
Everybody is welcome – we hope you can join us!
