Melksham Today & Yesterday - Thu 16th September 2021
Presented by Tony Fivash

MELKSHAM & DISTRICT HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION

Thursday 16th September at 7:30pm



Melksham Today & Yesterday

Presented by Tony Fivash

Melksham Assembly Hall


Visitors always welcome (£1)

We are taking precautions to ensure members safety. Anti-bacterial gel on entry,
widely spaced seating and the hall will be well ventilated.

We hope this will reassure members and visitors.

Refreshments will be available but once again all care will be taken to reduce handling.

Report -

Melksham and District Historical Association

……. Or New Beginnings!

The view as the lights went up after our very first meeting for over eighteen months. The Association’s President, Tony Fivash launched our return with a presentation of “Today and Yesterday” selecting areas or buildings and tracing back the changes that have taken place over the years.

We had been concerned as to how many members would support us so were overwhelmed to welcome over sixty members and visitors. We experienced the usual technical problems with the microphones and the pictures were not quite up to our usual high standard but like us, the Assembly Hall staff are still feeling their way after such a long period of shut-down. We expect all will be sorted before our next event when Gill Butler will be reminiscing her childhood strolls round the town on a Sunday afternoon with her mother.

Thursday 21st October – Melksham Assembly Hall at 7 30 pm (Visitors £1)

Viv Dwyer, our treasurer will again be taking names for those wishing to attend the AGM in November – we already have over 30 so really feel we are on the way back to some sort of normality.

Thank you everyone for your support and we look forward to seeing you next month.
