Our Packington Village History Group PVHG is to publish a new book about life in the inter-war years in our village. The new book is to be launched on Saturday 4th December 2021, at the Memorial Hall meeting room, from 10 am to 1 pm.
Verbal testimony, some of it a whole century old, was recorded in the last century by PVHG, from reminiscences of still-living members of the village. Their vivid recollections form our new PVHG book, “A Way of Life that is Gone“.
The book will be launched on Saturday, and editor Robn Boucher, chair of PVHG, will be at the launch to sign YOUR first-day cover of the book.
Only 100 copies have been printed – this is YOUR opportunity to own this heart-warming treasure for an investment of just £5.
Our final meeting for 2021 will be on Tuesday 23rd November at 7.30 p.m. in the Memorial Hall meeting room, when we will be planning our contribution to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June next year.
We have a list of 1950s words, courtesy of one of our members, Adrian Mongredien, and we will hear from him how he thinks this list could be used.
We are hoping to have available copies of “A Way of Life That Has Gone”, our new publication, but this is not confirmed yet. We will also discuss arrangements for selling it once it is fully available.
There is no December meeting; our next meeting will be on Tuesday 25th January 2022, which is also our Annual General Meeting (AGM)
